I am an astronomer, culinary artist, elementary band teacher, musician, (aspiring) pilot, and student who also partakes in photography, videography, and anything to do with the outdoors for fun. Although I have many hobbies, I hope to continue to grow in each, as well as in various aspects of life. Being quite equally balanced creatively and logically, as well as mentally, physically, and spiritually; I am in search of my Personal Legend. Besides being a tool to see growth in photography and life, I especially like to think of my 365 project as a form of visual journal; helping to jog the memory of various events and realize what, where, and who is important to me and makes up my galaxy.
Once in a while, I am graced by inspiration or am in the mood to find it. Regardless if this is or isn't the case, I attempt to capture the truth of what is around me; whether it be visible or not, like dark matter. This is one of the reasons I post original, unaltered pictures.
Please feel free to share any bits of advice, encouragement, inspiration, and wisdom you feel might be helpful.
