I am an IT Professional by trade and a poet, writer, and photographer for fun! Because my left brain gets an exhaustive workout in my profession, I lapse into right brain mode whenever possible to maintain a healthy balance and decompress from the chaos of life and work! My creative process is both complex and simple. The complexities arise when I try and understand what I am doing when I am doing it. It’s like trying to describe the sensation of love; one is better suited just experiencing it for oneself. It becomes simple when I let go into the process and don’t question it so much – kind of a surrender. I think that to live a life of expression is paramount and to me; it is the embodiment of freedom. I am interested in existing in a continual state of creativity no matter what form that takes; to find beauty and purpose in the mundane and in the otherwise trite and trivial. Life is lyrical, humorous, and often interwoven with a resonant musicality and I have been known to consume an entire life experience and distill that information into a few descriptive lines or photographs.
