Photography has played an integral role in my career. Early on, I used it mainly to take reference photos for my illustrations. It wasn't until I bought my first digital camera in 2001 that I used it as a vehicle to tell stories, much the same as I had been doing with illustration. I found it to be a new challenge and one that still proves elusive to master.
As an avid traveler, photography is a welcome companion, one that can open doors and initiate interactions. More importantly, it provides me with a visual account of the travels that I can share with others.
