I woke up in Nebraska and left. I moved to Idaho and, after a bunch of homework, left again but not without getting some grit in my bones. I then spent some time in New York refining that grit. New York was an interesting mix of contrasts, both harsh and delectable, but it was urban and novel, and I reveled in this new kind of world. Now I share my refinement and various hues of grit with you in my images. I spend time in both California and Idaho because this makes things in my psyche balance out. Dreams are life. Enjoy the ride.
