A personal exercise in a time of transition. I am concerned with connecting to life through photography, words, nature, and cultivation. While photography is my primary medium, I find a freedom in the idea that photography is just a tool for communication, so the work here will not be limited to only photos but rather a conglomeration of visual or written work. A journal if you will. A diary. A record of time.

March, 2019


There is so much story and life beyond me here. I came out to this tree several times, in early morning fog, during a short camping trip with my family south of Houston. I hope to sit with this tree, and the stories it holds — I find myself drawn more and more to the biology and mythology of trees. It’s been in the back of my mind since I was a child; I know so very little.
