Dr. Charles Quarles - Our State Magazine

Dr. Charles Quarles - Our State Magazine

When I first entered the home of Dr. Charles Quarles in Forest City, NC it was rather unassuming. From the outside it was just another ordinary ranch style home on a long suburban street.

A Seat at the Table

A Seat at the Table

Metaphorically, the tables were set months ago as chef John Fleer began to dream up what would become A Seat at the Table. This inaugural event was held on the evening of May 9 at Fleer’s The Rhu and Rhubarb. The event was invite-only and sold out weeks in advance.

Chargaux on Refinery29's Website

This past winter I had the opportunity to photograph the music duo Chargaux in Brooklyn, New York for Refinery29. Today I was so excited to see my images used on Refinery's website as they released the first part of their Sound Off video series.

My Desk For The Next Week

_JFS5007.jpg

Yesterday I drove the 1150 miles from Austin, TX to Asheville, NC. Today I am sitting on my friend Ben's porch in Asheville, journaling and working on my laptop as a midday rainstorm coming rolling through the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'll be here for the next week, and already I don't want to leave.
