(so I'm definitely a little new to this game...)

i love cameras, they're really cute. they have some amazing engineering inside. i do cine and some photo, in the past i did some lighting design for theater which only helped me in my aspirations to become a better cinematographer. i'm still learning, and hope i'll never stop.

I have a few major interests in my photo/video work. My main goal is to use photo/video to showcase people and stories that go against the typical stereotypes of society in an effort to change hearts and minds and make the world a better place. I love adventure, and additionally like showcasing engineering and science. I also want to inspire others to tell their own stories because all stories are important.

My project-1-2.png

this was a project I started after coming back from Ghana. I got a motorcycle and decided I wanted to get better at photography at the same time. the idea became, ride somewhere, take a nice photo, and also maybe film the process of taking the photo for others trying to become better photographers. I thought it would be a cool place to put "fixing the bike" videos as well. now it's kinda evolved into my motorcycle instagram (we now have a second bike named toothless). 

Ruth is a 1974 Honda CB360. She came with an amazing name from her previous owner that I felt was inappropriate to change. When I got her she needed most of her electrical system replaced, then I did some painting and installed a few add-ons. Toothless is a Ducati 900ss I bought from Madhouse motors in Boston, will be adding a HFC to the bike and I kinda want to ride it across the country if successful to raise awareness for renewable energy. 

(this is a new project I'm trying, would love if people sent feedback and also will be one of the first structured photography/video curated projects I've done. hope it goes well, hope you all enjoy! also hope other people (you) join me for the ride, whether that's on social media or physically on another motorcycle, bike, car, or other form of transportation!)
