“The good news is that in our long journey to the other shore, the world will always provide us opportunities to offer ourselves.” Lodro Rinzler


I am so fortunate to have so many opportunities in front of me!

You can see “Arrival” and a few other pieces from the Ghost Notes Series starting this Friday, August 4th, as a part of Kansas City Society of Contemporary Photography’s show “Finding Peace Finding Center” at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center in Kansas City, MO. (On display in the Main Gallery until August 24, 2017)

To see other opportunities coming up in the next couple of months, including exhibitions featuring the Ghost Notes Series, please have a look at my full schedule.


There’s so much in simplicity

“Simplicity should not be identified with bareness.”

-Felix Adler

A Moment’s Pause

“Life was not intended to be simply a round of work, no matter how interesting and important that work may be. A moment’s pause to watch the glory of a sunrise or a sunset is soul-satisfying, while a bird’s song will set the steps to music all day long.” Laura Ingalls Wilder, The Farm Journalist

“There’s a certain fear of simplicity. I think that’s the thing, when you’re younger as an artist, you get this idea in your head that complexity equals quality. The more notes you’re playing, the better.”
–Patrick Stump
