Artist Message


My stepdad was an editorial photographer and was my inspiration. He always had a camera in his hands and I remember my mother, siblings and I constantly being chased by his lens so that he could capture his Henri Cartier Bresson's "decisive moment."

When I was drafted to do my junior high school's first yearbook at age 12, my dad gave me one of his cameras, a Minolta SRT101. Being on the other side of the lens was a completely different experience; it gave me the creative freedom to view the world in my own way.

In high school I visited Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. When I walked into the photography gallery the impact was instant, I knew I had to become a photographer!

Since graduating from Art Center, my passion for people, products and places has given me the freedom to work with advertising, design, corporate, and editorial clients.

I thrive on turning concepts into images, get great satisfaction from making my client's life easier, and love creating an atmosphere where every shoot is relaxed and loads of fun!
