He bases his work alongside paintings of Edward Hopper and has been influenced by films directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock and the creative projects of David Lynch. these efforts have been paralleled to a silent psychological interzone that borders the everyday and uncanny moments in life.
The Brooklyn, New York native's photos have been crafted with meticulous attention to detail as a blend of orchestration, light, color and production enhances every offering with an accent of dreamlike sequences, mystery and suspense. Sounds intriguing if you ask me.
