I consider Visual Communications my "first language," with English following a close second. At a very early age, images spoke to me far more clearly than the written word. Color, texture, layers, emotion, authenticity, and story: this is the vocabulary I recognize.

For more than 15 years, I have helped people, brands, and businesses polish their visual message. Through photography, I can walk those lovely lines between art and commerce, observation and intention, chance and necessity, and bring emotion to a moment without using words. That’s a pretty good feeling.

My primary focus is in lifestyle advertising, editorial and portraiture. The root of my inspiration comes from meeting and working with the people behind the stories. Athletes, dancers, artists, makers. These are the people that have always made me reach for a camera. Love these things, too? We’d probably click. Let’s talk.
