I’m an artist, writer, photographer, and teacher. I’m also a husband, a dad, and a Papa, three of the best labels I have ever been given.

I started drawing and painting almost as soon as I was able to hold a pencil and a brush. I keep a sketchbook and pen handy most of the time in order to capture those things and moments I find interesting and beautiful. In this world we have pain and pleasure, sadness and joy, dark and light, ugliness and beauty. You can’t know one without knowing the other. This site is all about celebrating both and searching for the joy, light, and beauty we find in the tiny details that make life so amazing. Here we seek to create beauty in the unexpected.

Through my online activities I have found connections and community that I would have never know otherwise. It has been an incredible journey so far, and it’s exciting to see where it continues to lead.

I want this site to be a way for you to also connect with people and things from around the world that I you would otherwise have never known (you are here for a reason). I love sharing this creative space with you and am constantly inspired by all of my readers and this amazing community of ours.

Thanks for stopping by and welcome aboard! Feel free to look around and share your thoughts, energy, creativity, and joy!
