I was born in small town Canada to parents who had a spontaneous travelling addiction. It was a semester studying in the south of France where I developed my addiction to baguettes, pastries, and coffee.

It was also during this time that I uttered the sentence that would change my life.

My early life travelling allowed for my wings and horizons to grow. I went from a town so small it doesn’t exist any more to one of the biggest cities in the world, Seoul, South Korea where I was the first foreign born official photographer for the city.

Now based in Springhill, Nova Scotia, Canada. I have been photographing around the world for over 25 years blending natural beauty that emanates a sense of balance between tranquility and power drawing inspiration Asian artistic themes and shapes mixed with European colours.

I have been featured on Korean television networks SBS, EBS, and Arirang TV and internationally on CNN. I have been published in numerous magazines, books, and newspapers including National Geographic Partners, Lonely Planet, the Wall Street Journal, and Korean publications JoongAng Ilbo, and Cine21. I have also been in exhibitions in Fukuoka, Japan, Busan, and Seoul including one sponsored by National Geographic. I was also commissioned by a joint venture between Visa and Flixel for work during the Winter Olympics in 2018.

Oh that sentence that changed my life? “How did I do that, and how can I do it again?”
