When and how did you get your start as a photographer?
What does devised theatre mean to you?
How did you get involved with Blood Ensemble?

This is where I get to hone in all my skills I learned as a photojournalist. As a photojournalist you really want to be a fly on the wall, because you want to capture real life as it’s happening. The subject isn’t focused on the camera, because it might as well not be there. This is what I feel like when I am photographing a moment. I want to capture the moment but I also want to do all I can to stay out of the way and not disrupt it.

From your point-of-view behind the lens, what is the different between Blood Ensemble’s last show Blood/Sailing and Nevermore?
I think this show will be much more psychological. With the last show, it was more about the over arching theme – I was photographing grand scenes with kids trying to escape through a mountain, or goddesses arranged in a beautiful formation. With this show you’re really trying to get in these character’s heads to figure out a mystery, so it’s much more about photographing faces, expressions and trying to capture that mystery.
I love photographing nature. I’m big on hiking and camping, so if I can get out and photograph that, I’m always happy to do it.
Nothing yet, but I’m excited to see what’s up next too!
