I have lived in New Orleans with my wife and daughter since July 4, 1998. An (un)naturalized New Orleanian, I grew up in a formerly small town north of Chicago (a.k.a. Chicagoland).

My preferred arts are photography and fiction writing.

I've created a group pool dedicated to portraits and self portraits of New Orleanians. Check it out--and post to it--here: www.flickr.com/groups/neworleanians/

My current documentary photography project is here: nola3x3.com/.

I am also a founder of B2L2, an online magazine:

And if you're looking for a good book to read, look no further than my wife's brilliant debut novel:

    Loki and Lex says:

    "Consistently showing a brilliant eye for the sublime and tragic in our day to day lives, dsb always delivers imagery that grabs you at a visceral level.

    Sometimes it gently strokes you, sometimes it slams you against the wall, but it always throws the ordinary into such sharp relief that it becomes (or is suddenly realized as) extraordinary.

    New Orleans, the way it IS."
