Jack of all trades. Pretty much have done every odd job there is. Photography and digital art is my hobby and how I express myself artistically. I like to think I'm pretty good at them and always looking to improve my skills.

I call my approach to photography (especially cosplay) "Gonzo." Not in the pornographic meaning of the word but in the, "improvise and fly by the seat of your pants," definition. I get there, do quick compositions, take a couple of pics, have some fun and/or entertain/flirt with the cosplayers/models, and move on. Bing-bang-boom, done! I don't have a lot of gear (diffuser, ring-flash, tripod, and remote trigger) and use them sparingly. My personal nitpick is with photographers who travel around with walking studios. IMHO, I think you lose a lot of the fun and spontaneity of the moment when you bog yourself down.

I like constructive criticism. Please respect the models.

I have no real plans for world domination. Trust me.

Current Residence: Just outside of Washington, DC, USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: XXL
Print preference: Minion Semi-Bold Pro
Favourite genre of music: Rock, Rockin' Blues, Jazz, World, anything that has makes you feel something when you hear it
Favourite photographer: Ansel Adams, but I'm just delving into photography so this will probably change... radically
Favourite style of art: I really like Art Nouveau and the Beaux-Artes movement, ornate but organic
Operating System: Mac OSX
MP3 player of choice: iPhone
Shell of choice: tortoise
Skin of choice: my own?
Favorite cartoon character: too many to list - my ultimate wish is to be a cartoon as some point
Personal Quote: Friends help you move. "Real" friends help you move bodies. And books.
Found out that one of my photos was just used in an article by NYC Magazine (on-line edition), "Top 10 Reasons to Visit New York City."

I guess people like my photos? I'm humbled that my work is being well-received and amused that the photo they used was of the mega toy store, FAO Schwartz. I'm a pretty big toy geek so it's an appropriate choice. :-D…
