My work in The Hand Magazine, upcoming Kickstarter, shows, and more

I'm thrilled that my work was selected for issue 9 of The Hand (Magazine), which is already SOLD OUT!

Further, as many of you know, I'm preparing to launch my Kickstarter campaign. I'm happy to tell you that I'm aiming to be ready for it to go live fairly soon. Ideally in the next 2-4 weeks, but there's still quite a bit of work to do before then, so those dates aren't set in stone. 

For those of you who are just hearing about it now, the Kickstarter is for a high quality book based on my current/ongoing body of work. I don't want to give too much away just yet, but I will supply a link and tell you more about it once I'm ready to post it.



This fall, I will be exhibiting one of my images in the Lotus Garden Art Show on the upper west side of Manhattan; it’s a pop-up show, that is slated for September 19th, as of now, but I will keep you posted if that changes.

I’m also thrilled that one of my images will be in the Friends Without a Border auction this October. FWAB was actually founded by (photographer) Kenro Izu, and it’s a great cause. If you want to learn more, here’s a link.

Also, stay tuned for news about an upcoming interview.

More to come...

Thank you for your ongoing support!
