I love using my photography to document places and things… That’s what I feel like I’m doing with my photos and Toronto… although I was born in Thunder Bay (up north in Ontario)… I have now lived in Toronto longer than I lived anywhere else and I have really made it my home…

I do photograph outside of Toronto sometimes, but when I was 17, I stopped in Toronto for a one night lay over on my way to visit a friend… wow… I was hooked… I remember thinking… I need to come and live in this city… experience this everyday… it was a great dream… at 19 it came true… I came to go to college and the rest is history as they say. 

I love seeing people recognize the parts of their city that means something to them… it gives it an energy, and then they can also see it through my eyes… I have the experience of taking the photo, which I am always happy to share, but when I am lucky I get to hear about their experience and it makes that photo larger for me… fuller… some photos have given me so much, I feel fortunate for having taken them
