"Excitement for me is watching people interact with others, interpreting their various forms of communication, especially the non-verbal.  I particularly enjoy taking photographs of our older generation; every crease in their face tells a personal story that I could learn from.  I capture small moments, before they become a distant memory or forgotten. By capturing these moments, it allows me to make sense of what I see before me, as well as mentally cataloging the moment. These are my motivations. I am also interested in photography that challenges peoples' perceptions of problems that we face as a community.
