I’m a Bay Area based web developer who also imagines himself a photographer and cartoonist. Originally from Peoria, Illinois, I began drawing at an early age, and started photographing in 1997. I studied graphic design, photo developing, figure drawing, film history, and cinematography at Illinois Central College and Academy of Art in San Francisco.
Film and digital camera hardware has long interested me, from the Pentax K1000, Polaroid, plastic medium format Holga and Lubitel, Canon SLRs, and Leica rangefinders and mirrorless cameras.
Both photography and comics are journaling, and a way of recording what I fear may disappear — either the moment, the life, or the memory.
