New York

When I was a child living in Kansas, I told my mother at the tender age of 4, that I would live in New York City. She was shocked to hear such an independent phrase from a 4-year old, but after years of pining I finally moved to my "hometown" in 1995.

No city has inspired me more and allowed me to be free. I honor New York with my photography and hail the independent spirit I exhibited at the mere age of 4.
