my Army family from Georgia where I was born (on an army base) to Japan, the northwest, and even further northwest to Alaska.  We crisscrossed the country at least four times. These travels may account for my forever roaming and restless eye. In this web site I have attempted to categorize my photographs by certain themes or topics that emerge and reveal themselves to me ex post facto.
My photographs and videos have been shown at the Piedmont Arts Festival, The Rankin Gallery at Columbus State University, Georgia State University, The Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College, Eyedrum Gallery, Doogallery, Sycamore Gallery, and Youngblood Gallery. My photography influences and inspirations include Emmet Gowin, Duane Michaels, Alec Soth, Gordon Parks, Jerry Uelsmann, Sally Mann, Les Krims, Diane Arbus, Dorothea Lange, Henri Cartier-Bresson, my friend Kenny Gray and of course Louis Daguerre. I have an MFA in Studio Art (photography/video) and a BA in Film Studies from Georgia State University.

This web site was created while I was an MFA student at Georgia State University and presents three research projects – Banksy and the Art of Public Discourse ,  a comparison of the works of Robert Frank and Emmet Gowin*, and The Atlanta Church Project.

*The comparison includes an interview I did with Emmet Gowin.
