The claim can be made that as far back as infancy, I developed an affinity for authenticity that has since unconsciously determined the majority of my decisions.
As an older child, I would watch classic movies on Saturday morning television, curious why modern day motion pictures were so noticeably different. This craving for imperfection continued into adulthood, as I find things like the texture of letter-pressed paper, the tapping of words forming on a type writer, and roll film far more fascinating than anything digital.
Aside from old fashioned lifestyle preferences, my love for people, fashion and nature sums up the parts of my whole quite well. In only a few words, my interests gravitate toward the finer things in life, such as the sound of waves crashing nearby with Hawaiian coffee in hand, the golden luminosity of an aged Scotch, or the wafting scent of pan seared scallops ready to be served.
Summarized in only one word, I am a creator. Whether with light through a camera, or five ingredients in a drinking glass, I experience the high of joyfulness when making something.
