i'm a photographer studying at the academy here in san francisco.
my focus leans towards dark surrealism but i'm interested in most facets of the field. Excluding street photography, i can't seem to get past the whole stalking strangers and not feeling weird about it.
a lot of my work deals with identity in various formats. Some more surrealist, some not even coherent. i hope to have a whole body of work devoted just to the concept of identity.
a friend of mine and i once had a conversation, we're both attending art school for photography and i told him that i didn't consider myself an artist yet. He was bewildered by this and said that he felt sorry for me. That he considered himself an artist. it's not that i don't think i'm good at what i do, i just don't know what makes a person an artist. sure you can paint a painting but does that make you an artist? does snapping a shot make me an artist? i don't know. do you?
i'm also a gamer, not as hardcore as i'd like to be but thats what happens when you start to grow up and focus on other things. games like ico and shadow of the colossus, dead space, silent hill, games that make you think, use new mechanics, or scare the shit out of you. deep story lines are a huge plus but even simple games like flow are fun.
i miss intellectual conversation.
i used to be a writer, Poet, short story fabricator.
my writing style grew more abstract the older i got and i never was really able to go back to a more conventional method.
so most of my writing is chaotic and doesn't make a lick of sense.
though i do get inspired. and i can turn a phrase or compliment.
i'm a bit scatter brained.
