Born into a military family that took me from the United Kingdom to Alamogordo, New Mexico. I was a film buff from an early age and intended to become a filmmaker; however, my then undiagnosed and untreated bipolar disorder seemed to toss me around without my permission. After finally being diagnosed and eventually finding a treatment regimen that worked for me, I decided to be of service to those who also suffered from mental illness and substance abuse (and discovered that I love photography). I'm not sure that I have any specific artistic influences. I find myself inspired by the little things that some people seem to pass by without noticing. I currently live in Tucson, Arizona.
