I'm an advertising and editorial photographer based in Los Angeles. Photography is a career perfectly suited to my personality and it's all I've wanted to do since I was on the yearbook staff in 8th grade. Every project I work on gives me the opportunity to meet amazing people, learn something new and create a souvenir of the experience in the process.


I teach week-long workshops in editorial portraiture and lighting each year at the Sports Photography Workshop held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado. I've also been a guest presenter at the Brooks Institute of Photography, the Atlanta Photojournalism Conference, and the SportsShooter Workshop.
