At an early age I taught myself photography and set on a path to meet and photograph the people who intrigued me and go to the places that inspire me. Early on, I figured the vehicle to do this would be photography. I remember being influenced by Matthew Brady's photographs of the Civil War and thought that recording history with photographs was something that I wanted to pursue. I was also inspired by the photographers who appeared Life and National Geographic magazines and so as a teenager, prepared myself for a career in photojournalism. I was influenced by the leading photographers of the time, such as Yousef Karsh, Richard Avedon, and Arnold Newman.
