At the age of six I wanted to be a cook. At seven I wanted to be Napoleon. And my ambition has been growing steadily ever since. -Salvador Dali

On my road trip to Austin Texas. I came across a small gas station with a small abandoned town on the side near the freeway. I loved the buildings and some of the shops are still open but I wonder how the heck are they still in business. I’m new to this. If a shop closes up then they board it shut and soon after a new one opens up for a they demolish it and build housing, they don’t hold on for dear life and have the town support them.

A series I worked on this semester in school. I took a completely technical assignment about the 6 different types of light and turned it into a series of Movie and TV stills. I choose these different characters from movies/shows because I feel they represent a certain personality that I connect to in some way. I also made prints and turned this into a photo album. I think I needed to do this series because I also have a need to act or portray someone else for a little while because I find it so much fun.

I normally wouldn’t want to tell people the series but I feel I should explan
