Visual Retrospectives of City Culture

I am a photo-illustrator based in Portland, Oregon. I create portraits of urban centers – starting, of course, with the vibrant city of Portland, Oregon. My work blends architecture, urban details, and fleeting moments to moments to tell a richly layered story not possible individually. I am keenly aware how the architectural environment reflects human culture and I distill and decipher it so you can see it more clearly. 

My scenes become a retrospective of city centers thereby preserving city history and culture. They also serve as reflections of favorite places, landmarks, and experiences which provide viewers fond memories and hope for future adventures that still await them.
