Thank you for looking at my photographs. Art has always been a part of me, for as long as I can remember. As a child, I would learn and practice any style of art I could. Dreamed of going to art school, living my life just creating. I spent my time building a portfolio, thinking of what an artist's life would be like. But that never happened. As I grew older, I still dreamed of being a full-time artist, but was too scared. Art had become such a huge part of my identity, that the thought of being rejected from art school became a reject of myself, a rejection of identity. So, I "sold out" became the computer guy. I still created art but for the most part kept it too myself. Life felt safer, but computers have never been satisfying. Then one day, I had kids. They changed everything. I had to take a deep look at myself as figure out what kind of parent I wanted and needed to be. What I wanted my kids to learn. What kind of man I need to be as an example. I want them to learn not to be scared to try, to put themselves out there. My job as a father, is to help my kids become better than myself, so I just can't tell them, I need to show them. So here we are, me showing them.
