I grew up with The Twilight Zone and Creature Feature, Movie Stars and Rock Idols, The Photographs of Time Life and Vogue Magazines, LP Records and Mixed Tapes, and MTV Videos, …
I love that we all have two sides and I am a lover of Contrast… Light & Dark, Black & White, Life & Death, Beauty & Darkness, Past & Future.
I explore mortality and our journey.
I am deeply influenced by my film and photography idols- Alfred Hitchcock and Herb Ritts.
I adore anything Classic and everything Monochrome.
