I’m inspired by hope, faith, and grace. I enjoy riding my folding bike through the streets of Long Beach and stopping to photgraph the allure in the mundane, which serves to help me create. Whether it’s the beauty in a decaying flower or the American flag waving in the background that often seems as an afterthought, there’s hope in whatever type of faith one has.
