The largest body of work I've produced is in photographs. I began taking pictures in 1990, at the encouragement of a close friend. I went on to study studio photography at the Everett Community College, NYU/Tisch, and the Memphis College of Art. In my lifetime, I've shot tens of thousands of images, and I am daunted by the task of beginning a comprehensive catalogue. This online portfolio represents a small but revealing cross-sample of my archive. I hope to add images as time allows. Bear in mind that some of this material is NSFW!

Below you will find a general overview page, which shows a cross-section of my work, and various photo essays.
