I do my best to live up to this ethos in all endeavors. These words were given to me by a friend and muse — and though they are tough to live by — they provide me with my drive and direction as a creator. They evoke the struggle inside me to to capture the expansive nature of my subjects through nuanced and up-close details. Through this interplay — and with the use of organic, minimal lighting — I am able to cultivate a raw connection and capture intense emotion, creating candid and honest portraits. I exercise my creative talents best in the fields of editorial, advertising and documentary work focusing on urban youth lifestyle, celebrity portraiture and assignment by publication.
In my free time I'm an avid cyclist exploring the landscape around me, a possessed downer of cold brew coffee, and an animated Dog Dad to my pit bull Milo. If I'm not out about town on an adventure, you can probably find me at home testing out a new recipe in the kitchen and putting on Miles records.
