I've never been a great talker, so it makes sense that I learned to express myself through writing and the photos I make. At first I used photography to show things and tell stories, but now I'm trying to express what's inside ... like going from journalism to poetry. All these thoughts and feelings — the angst and joy and questions and yearning — want to be released. It's like sending a ping out into the universe to see if anyone out there hears and understands.
