Thank you for visiting the site; I’m a re-vert to the Catholic Faith and a photo and media guy. The focus of the work I do is to present the Church, her Mission and Life, to the world; to bring the reality of what the Church is and how God is Alive in and through her to people who may never have set foot in church building or have never had an encounter with Christ. There are countless stories to tell through words, but imagery has a way of opening the eyes of Faith in a person that transcends language and can invite without being confrontational. It’s provocative, honest and real.
Imagery is Important
The use of strong images for any periodical, blog, or website can add a level of dialogue and impact that cannot be understated and it is for this reason that I have embraced this vocation and am a passionate advocate for this.
Evangelization Through Imagery
I am constantly seeking projects and opportunities to bring stories to life, and if you have something important that you would like say, an event, a Ministry or Mission that you feel would be advanced through imagery I would love to speak with you. My vocation is to bring these things to life.
Through the years many people have supported me in this Mission and I’d like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of them, most especially, Karna Swanson-Lozoya from Catholic University, Jesus Colina from Aleteia and ZENIT, Chris Bell at Good Counsel Homes, John Woods at Catholic New York, Vik Van Brantegem, Liz Malcolm from EWTN,
