As a self-taught artist, I work hard to create images that intrigue and sparks the imagination. Street photography — the art of capturing candid images in everyday life — allows me to document the world around me, moment by moment. When viewed through a lens, my surroundings become a stage, and with it, a myriad of stories and characters. My goal is to capture unique and unexpected moments, creating images that elicit an emotional response from the viewer and raise unanswered questions about people and society.

I am a member of Scarborough Arts and have exhibited at its annual Art in the Park festivals. Most recently, my work was featured as part of Love Lives in Scarborough, photographic artworks produced by LoveisLoveisLove, highlighting the diverse experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals living in the Scarborough community.

This past summer, I contributed three images as part of Gallery City, a city-wide “art crawl” this past summer that featured 35 artists and more than 100 businesses in street-side art galleries.

In 2017, I published “One Moment In Time,” my first collection of images. I also just recently printed a collection of street photos called “72 Hours In New York.”

Please get in touch with me to inquire about my availability for portraits and corporate events, print sizes and prices for images in my portfolio, or if you recently modelled for me in street photography and would like a free copy of your photo.
