My work tells the stories of my connections with several remarkable people who have invited me into their private lives to talk, laugh, cry, observe, and photograph. Driven by curiosity, a desire to connect with people, and empathy which stems from my own life experiences, I use photography as a way to meet colorful individuals and to document our interactions.
