I photograph the things humans create and I film people.
I enjoy working with digital and film formats – whichever form meets the needs of the project.
I am a photographer and documentary filmmaker. It’s not my job. It’s my life, and I’m loving every moment.
Born into a military family, I moved around a lot growing up so I don’t really have a place where I call home in the physical sense. What I do call home is where my family gathers. When we are all together, that’s my home and that’s where I am from.
Growing up I had two dreams; to become an Astronaut and to be a photographer for National Geographic. After earning a degree in Aerospace Engineering and having a successful career, I found myself unfulfilled in my daily work. During this time I continued to nurture my interest and skills in photography. When the opportunity to move to San Francisco and start my photography career presented itself, I took it.
Since then I have been successfully pursing my career as a freelance commercial and fine art photographer. I have been selected and exhibited in two group shows; the 2014 APA LA “Off The Clock” Exhibition, curated by Britt Salvesen (Curator and Head of Wallis Annenberg Photography Department at the LA County Museum of Art) and exhibited in the 2013 APA LA “Off The Clock” Exhibition, curated by Anne Lyden (Associate Curator at the J. Paul Getty Museum in LA).
Through photography and film I explore the physical aspects of our world and use the medium to express a different way of looking at things you might see everyday.
