I have had a passion for photography as long as I can remember. I see the beauty of nature from the grand scale of a panoramic landscape to the drop of rain clinging desperately to a flower after a spring shower. Living in Chicago for the first half of my life, I find myself captivated by the lines and symmetry of architecture. I see the human form and human spirit as both delightful and compelling. I am sometimes awestruck by the effect of light on a single object or an entire environment.
