I was raised in Indiana and moved to California after high school where I studied the photographic arts and eventually earned a degree in graphic design and computer graphics.
I have worked mostly as a graphic/web designer and photographer for large corporations, start-ups and educational institutions such as Kodak, Be Here Corporation, Addison-Wesley Publishing, Family Life Magazine, Bon Appetit, Google and Stanford University.
In addition, I am a freelance portrait photographer with a strong passion for photographs that tell a story. My love for thematic photos developed out of an interest for editorial and fashion photography. I also love photographing the simple things in life as seen in my food, travel and still life photos.
The greatest gift I can give someone is through my imagery. If I put a smile on someone's face or a warm feeling in their heart, then I know I have been successful.
