I was eight-years-old when the power of photography awoke me. To see time frozen changed my perspective. This was the late ’80s and it was the coolest thing I had seen because it was a representation of how I saw the world. To share how I see the world. And today, it still has that exact effect on me. Capturing the beauty of a fleeting moment. Connections in life around the world. My work is a testament to that.

Like a stiff drink after a long day, photography calms me. Photography helps puts the world into perspective. It gives me a sense of adventure. To showcase the beauty in the world. And it has taken me around the globe to shoot—Ghana, Brazil, Los Angeles, Cambodia, Iceland, China, Amsterdam, Cuba, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Ecuador, Chicago, Argentina, Kenya, New York City, Egypt, Switzerland, Vietnam, South Africa, Morocco—and here at home in Toronto. I’ve worked with photography clients such as Apple, Red Bull, Spotify, Universal Music, WayHome Festival, Intrepid Travel, Me to We and WE Charity, the JUNO Awards, Red Cross, Toronto Star, Applied Arts and Billboard magazine.

I aim to capture the beauty of fleeting moments around the world. The connections in life.
