My Bio

discovered photography at age 19 when my father handed me his film Minolta complete with lenses, filters, tripod and a camera bag! i shot downtown with bnw film and i remember the looks on his face when he saw my prints. "these are GOOD NeNe" :) that was a rare thing - he is super critical. i beamed.

then i met isabel. my muse. she was my guinea pig for portrait photography before i learned the art of self portraiture.

then i got a macro lens.

then i got a wide.

i've won contests, been on magazine covers, have work hanging in commercial buildings and graduated with an art degree. in the end i just want to share - not compete.

beauty is all around us and within every human.

Awarded Feb 2004
i find it depressing that the community that wants to support all humans/transgender in particular (which I support) has lost their way in pieces of extremity and looks like a new form of patriarchy against women. you can change your sex, from male to female, because you are female and not meant to be male - i applaud and support you. but whatever you change/add - you cannot take away the nature given power/speed/strength that presented you as heterosexual male human being at birth - and because of that - you have an unfair advantage you should not exploit despite your sex change in sports against women. it's selfish and unfair. i said it. i'm pro trangender. we can disagree.

862 to go (or less) to truly feel FREE. Impending DOOM is a human condition. This is why living sober, living in the present is so key to human happiness. It's ironic that no child escapes without the trauma of growing up. Clearly some more heavy handed than others. I understand more than ever why my Grandmother would find such joy when the SUN IS SHINING. It's so healing to notice it, bask in it, and know you can count on it rising every day - even on those days the clouds cover it. It's fucking there. Every single day. I feel at peace honestly about literally everything. I have matured to know that regret is to be acknowledged and then TOSSED AWAY. I still miss people. But it no longer debilitates me. My sadness no longer controls me. That has taken a lifetime. Sobriety again has been key for that to even be possible. If you're burning. Just walk through the fire. It won't kill you. Even when you want it to. It simply is threatening you to control you. That
