"To see the world every day with fresh eyes, rather like children, creative and outrageous."

As a documentary filmmaker and photographer my goal is to enlighten the human condition. From hermits in the California desert to monks in the Austrian alps to native American and East Indian Shamans, I explore life through the bond of spirituality and art.

As a travel photographer, my studio is the world outside my door and the only equipment required is a camera and a willingness to look for new perspectives. I see the world with honesty and compassion. More than just exotic locations and wild adventures, (travel) photography is about seeing our surroundings with an open mind and childlike enthusiasm.
