Dear readers,

I can’t apologize enough for my absence. My fall/winter were swept up in a flurry of freelance and my posting laid collapsed beneath.

With the new year comes new projects, part of which I’ll share a snippet today.

I’ll update with some of my client work in the coming weeks. Patience, patience.

Last Friday I had another visit with my friend Christian Aldo. In classic Christian fashion, he took me on an adventure (even if it was only across the street) to a defunct shoe store. Although the place had been up and running till last April, the store had an eerie hollow to it.

It’s been a while since my last post.

A few things that have happened recently:

  • I won College Photographer of the Year in the Loyalist Pictures of the Month Contest.
  • I just moved to Toronto in preparation for my summer internship at the Toronto Star.
  • My camera is currently at the manufacturers because its condition started free falling at an alarming rate.

Here’s a teaser from a project I started working on yesterday. An explanation will come later.

I’ve recently embarked on a new documentary following the life of a practicing (and teaching!) Wiccan living in Trenton. She has quite a story to tell and I am looking forward to giving her a platform to tell it. Here’s a little snippet from the other day. Stay tuned…

I recently placed first in the sports and multiple category in the Loyalist College Photo Contest for the month of November. I am now sitting at second place with 300 points, tied with my roommate, Paula Trotter.
