Although I received a degree in photojournalism from the University of Texas at Austin, most of my professional life has been dedicated to progressive politics and workers' rights. I have never pursued any sort of career in photography, although I have had a small number of gallery exhibitions and scattered publication.
I am relatively new to the world of digital photography--I was inspired to purchase my first DSLR about a year and half ago, upon learning that my wife was pregnant with our first child. I have shot and edited more images since then than I had in the previous 10 years combined.
Since the birth of our daughter Alice Bee in December 2010, the majority of my inspiration has stemmed from creatively documenting the first moments of her life in our family.
