Hello! Thank you for visiting my site. Here’s my story in a nutshell: For the vast majority of my life, I dedicated myself to soccer. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, then went on to play collegiate soccer at Colgate University in upstate New York. As soccer was no longer at the forefront of my life post-graduation, I was left with a significant void. I decided to do a bit of international travel and had a camera on me at all times to document my ventures. As fate would have it, I ended up moving out to LA and began working for Justine Ungaro, a dynamite photographer whose work I truly admire. I continued to take pictures, and found that doing so gave me that same spark that soccer had always given me. So I purchased my first SLR camera and decided to make a career out of it. Although I believe that experience is the best teacher, I also took several photo courses at the Julia Dean Photo Workshops (which I highly recommend). Today, I am grateful that we found each other, photography and I. My philosophy is that there is light in every being, and it is my responsibility to find and capture it. At parties and events, my style is to take candids that tell a story of the occasion. For headshots and portraits, my intention is to capture the true essence of whoever is in front of me. I like to have fun on the job and make my clients feel comfortable and at ease. I encourage people to be themselves in front of the camera, relax, and enjoy the experience, and I’m grateful to able to carry my creative passion into my professional life. Thanks again for stopping by!
