My younger sister just got back from a trip to Peru which made me want to revisit the photos I took from when I went in 2009. While going through them I came across these panoramas that I took at Colca Canyon and Machu Picchu. These images were all made by stitching together several photos taken in portrait orientation. My friend says I came up with this method but I think it was just easier for me to keep a flat horizon while shooting in portrait mode. Either way, I am still quite proud of these images.

Concept art for an unfinished children’s book. The story was about a yellow balloon that floats up to the moon and beyond. The artwork was made by scanning images of pottery and textiles. It’s inspiring to me to come across and old idea like this and see so much value in it. Enough that I think I have to finish this book!
My dog is Alan is renown for being a very good boy but I happened to snap these pretty badass looking portraits of him a while back! So dashing!

My friends Amarah and Jared are taking their sound in a new direction with a band called Memory Keepers and it is really doing it for me! I’m so glad Jared asked me to come take photos for their first show!
I’ve been playing Dungeons & Dragons with some of my co-workers turned friends and it has been one of the most creative and engaging things I’ve ever done! I think playing D&D is helping me become a better storyteller and I am really excited to play more and more!
Two of my most beautiful friends got married last May. The celebration was at Jacob’s Well in Wimberly, TX where they met in high school. I was having too much fun partying so I didn’t get too many shots, but I love the ones I did. <3
Happy 6th birthday to my funny man Alan! He’s the sweetest, bestest boi in the whole universe and I love him so much!
Loverboy is an all female impov comedy troupe of Austin and they do this show where a monologist is invited to come up and share a relationship story, and then Loverboy does an improv set based on what their guest shares! It’s brilliant, and funny, and often touching, and here are some photos are took of them once!
It's snowing in Austin y'all...and it's sticking! I ran out front just a moment ago to grab a few shots! Enjoy!
My coworker set up a powerful filtered telescope on the roof of my office for some glorious Eclipse viewing today! Sometimes, only having your iPhone camera can yield some unique and unpredictable imagery.

My pup loves it when Ella comes over. She's the prettiest pitty I know and it seems Alan thinks so too.
My wish to see an Ai Weiwei piece IRL came true this weekend! Forever Bicycles is a fantastic illusion, and totally mesmerizing. Go downtown, head all the way down Trinity until you hit the river and see it for yourself! Major kudos to The Contemporary Austin and Waller Creek Conservancy for scoring this project.
Some of my friends put on a monthly rap show called Austin's Nicest at Hole in the Wall. It's dope. You should go. I took pics! Featuring Clifton Dukes, Protextor, Secret Levels, and DJ Burnzy on the ones and twos.
I'd like to show my support on International Women's Day by celebrating Suhasini John, my Mom. On the left is a photo of her when she was 27. On the right is a recreation of the photo by me, taken this past January, at age 62. This past holiday season, she found out that she has breast cancer and immediately began treatment to fight it from spreading. She asked me to take this photo before starting chemotherapy. My mom is and always has been the most beautiful and powerful woman on earth. Two months into intense treatment and she continues to be just as stunning and strong! During this difficult, and uncertain battle, she is the one showing us how to make it through with strength and grace. Love you Mumma! Ummas!
Marmalakes put on a fantastic show at Sidewinder the other night and finally got to snap a few very colorful shots of them playing! Enjoy!
