"Photography is my journey."

""The journey I'm taking is inside me. Just like blood travels down veins, what I'm seeing is my inner self, and what seems threatening is just the echo of the fear in my own heart...The path leads to a special place, a light source that spins out the dark, the place where soundless echoes come from." Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore.

"Massachusetts is: Melrose-Wakefield Hospital, where I was born; the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary, where I take pictures; The Boston Public Library, where I work, study and read; MassArt, where I received a BFA in photography; the place I keep trying to leave and where I always return."
