Bathed In Light

Bathed In Light

Four times each year the cross streets of Manhattan are awash in the most radiant light you’ll ever see, and the setting sun illuminates everything in its sight with a golden glow. The phenomenon has been dubbed “Manhattanhenge”. On these days, thousands of photographers flood the streets to get a glimpse of our star’s Midas Touch.

On a quest to be a modern day Renaissance Man, a goal I tackle one day at a time.

I am “The Idealist”.   A passionate lover (in love with my muse), spirited photographer, loving brother, gracious son, but above all, an insatiable learner.  I seek unity.  Unity of body and mind, of emotions and intellect.  Through my years I’ve realized that the following is right:  The more I learn, the more aware I grow of my ignorance.

I began taking pictures as a way of making keepsakes for myself.  My memory is terrible, and photography has the magical effect of instilling in me where I was, and more importantly, how I felt when I pressed that shutter button.  The feeling I get from seeing people enjoy my photography is indescribable.

Music is my escape from my own thoughts, and so I cherish it deeply.  In a perfect world, I would be a godly drummer.

I started to study computer programming in college, until I became aware of a deep-rooted hatred for math that lingered inside, so I switched to a double major in English and Philosophy.  That turned out to be the greatest decisions of my life, because it taught me to critically think for myself, and to cherish the truth above all.
