Latest Works Photography Portfolio

    It's been awhile since I've done any work on my website, and I have a lot of catching up to do.  I recently began uploading my most recent photography projects into my Adobe portfolio  as I think it's a much better display for my images rather than here on this platform.

It's been a long year thus far, and a lot has happened, but now that it's winter, I have more time to do some updating and work here.    For now, here's some of my most recent photography projects.


Below is a single image from each set.  Clicking on the image will open the full set in a new window.w

On Nov 4th I attended the Protect The Results Rally in Salem, Massachusetts.  It was great to be with familiar faces, as well as meeting new ones.  The photos were captured at night and I decided to process them as black and white.

I was very delighted to get together in Beverly, Massachusetts with fellow Zen practitioner & social justice activist Sarah and I'm happy with the images we created.   She's passionate about vegan lifestyle and plant based nutrition, as well as a die hard animal rights activist.  You can follow her on instagram @extradeliciousness if you love good, healthy, colorful food.  I'm looking forward to working with her again in the future if it arises.

Beautiful Sarah

It was a joyous and beautiful day getting together with the one person in the world who inspires me the most, my Zen priest and teacher Myozen Joan Amaral of Zen Center North Shore, Beverly, Massachusetts.  I had an amazing time doing this together .

Photos of Black Lives Matter Protest & March, Boston, Massachusetts

This past Sunday, May 31st, 2020, I went together with a fellow Zen practitioner friend & participated in the Black Lives Matter protest in Boston, Massachusetts.  I first became aware of the protest through my Zen priest and teacher Joan during her Sunday morning Dharma talk.   Our Zen center is very active when it comes to education, awareness and action in social justice issues like ending systemic racism, etc, and after hearing about the protest happening later on in the day, I felt inspired and compelled to be there in solidarity with all beings.  

It was beautiful and powerful to see so many people of all walks of life, together, in solidarity, united in cause.   It was huge.  Systemic racism is a reality in America, and it needs to end. NOW.  America's police state of and culture of government issued violence must end NOW!


End Thin Blue Line.  End White Silence.  Black Lives Matter
