While in the lavatory on a domestic flight in March 2010, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet cover seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror using my cellphone. The image evoked 15th-century Flemish portraiture. I decided to add more images made in this mode and planned to take advantage of a long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland, guessing that there were likely to be long periods of time when no one was using the lavatory on the 14-hour flight. I made several forays to the bathroom from my aisle seat, and by the time we landed I had a large group of new photographs entitled Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style.

I'm studying journalism at Temple University where I learn to throw words like ~multimedia~ ~interactive~ and ethics around so I can land a job one day.
Recently I've found a home in photography and video – apparently I'm good at it, too.
Oh, and once upon a time I got certified to massage people... and horses.
