Writing a first blog post is more than a bit intimidating. Whether you chose to view my portfolio first or to begin with a peek into the workings of my mind, my devout hope is that those of you who visit my little corner of the internet – photographers, fans, and models alike – might leave inspired, and perhaps with a better understanding of how I tick. Topics explored here will range from photoshoot experiences, tips for beginning models, updates on my personal life, and musings on the process and politics of my career. 

For those unfamiliar with me, I have been pursuing this career for the better part of five years. While I started out with no intention of ever posing nude, the genre called to me with a fury and has been my pride and passion ever since. Nothing else in my life has offered such an abundance of community, growth, and healing. I am a better person for my art, and I continually use it as a form of expression, a spiritual journey, and a catalyst for growth. For what good is art if it has no effect on the artist? How am I to move you without first being moved myself?

When you immerse yourself in my art, in my photographic and written portfolios both, you begin to know me as intimately as any lover.  Look and see how I connect with the camera. Pay attention to the strength of my body. Let yourself connect with my eyes, a connection and expression as genuine digitally as it could ever be in person. Explore the idea that each image is a unique moment in time in which I was fully alive, and let it become an impetus to become fully alive yourself.

I create for myself, yes, and for the collaborators whose visions I embody, but my creations are just as much for you. So please, peruse. Explore my many websites and social media accounts, and partake in all I have to offer. Let me move you as my art as moved me, inspire you as it has inspired me, and heal you as it has healed me.
