I started dabbling in writing in 2006. Started writing screenplays out of my love for movies.

It’s hard.

Story-telling, however, doesn’t have to be relegated to only the written word.

Photographs also tell a story. Embedded within every image you snap is a memory. A time. A place. A feeling. And the super dope thing about it? An image tells a different story for each person. I took the below photo, for example, in 2017 during an excursion to Downtown Los Angeles (DTLA). I looked up, I hit the shutter, and this was the image that was created.

For me, it represents a condition known as “Acrophobioa”, or the “fear of heights”. You have the moon, a flying, metal box, and an old, rustic apartment high-rise. If you grew up pre-9/11, and were old enough to remember where you were that day (I was in 10th grade chemistry, I believe) then perhaps a photo of buildings and flying things evokes a different kind of fear.

The photography section of this blog will feature “series”. These could go on for months, a week, or perhaps they’ll be permenant, I don’t know.

The first series is called Love|Fear and you can find it by clicking the link below (This page will be updated as Series are added).

The Love|Fear Series

I hope you enjoy them.
