I have always been attracted to the sublime, the allegorical, and the mystical aspects of the truth, which can only exist in God Himself, as He is the way, the truth, and the life. He has been with me all the days of my life and today I enjoy His sweet presence as He abides in me. I am a neurobiologist focused on the intricacies of Learning, Memory and Emotions, which I have researched with my students for the past 17 years. However, science is not what defines me. I am happily married and have two dear sons. I have an intimate relationship with God, and my life is dedicated to Him as I enjoy the rich supply of His grace, light, and life. As an autodidactic fine art and digital art photographer, I am moved to use art as a form of glorious expression, allowing my awareness of meaning, life experiences, and beliefs to shape my inspiration. My hope and my faith is that my creations serve to elicit specific, yet profound, sentiments, thoughts, and emotions hidden, not readily accessible, within the soul and spirit of the beholders.
