Photographic film is an excellent way to store visual information long-term. I take pictures a forgotten way. Born and raised in Texas, I worked as a graphic artist after college. In 2011, with pictures of the Dust Bowl in mind, I traveled across the Texas Panhandle with a view camera for a series titled A Place Called Happy.

Inside a view camera, all appears upside down. My work evokes a bygone era, meets the open road and demonstrates landscape architecture. I practice both wet and dry imaging methods in order to create something every day.
