Based in Joplin, Missouri.
My photos are not of the world around me or how I see things, they are what I wish to see and what I dream to create. Since the age of 13 I have had Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, a nervous system disease that causes chronic pain, which initiated me to turn to photography. I just wanted to make beauty from where there was only pain. All I could ask for is to not feel the pain and when I create my images, it's almost as if I am free.
