I first picked up a camera at the age of 17, and it was put down until I was 20. The second time around, I decided to really learn about the world of photography and what it meant to be a photographer. Throughout that time, I learned about composition, lighting, and how to properly use a dSLR. After time passed, I learned something that wasn't taught to me from any manual; I learned to become a storyteller.
Most of my photography career has been in NYC where I was shooting portrait and editorial work. I worked under several amazing photographers as both a photography assistant and retoucher. I had the privilege of showing my fine art work in galleries in OH, NJ, and NY.
I am currently based in the Portland, Oregon. I'm available for artistic shoots and portraits. I love working with people to create images that break away from the ordinary.
