Self Portrait, Oakland California, October 2016

About

I am a passionate editorial, lifestyle, and portrait photographer based in the Bay Area. I love portraiture and capturing people's essence through the lens.  I specialize in creating striking images with raw edge and conceptual undertones.

I earned a BFA in Photography from Ball State University and then moved to San Francisco to chase California dreams. After a number of years working as a photo technician, studio manager, production design, and in house photographer I broke off to become a full time freelance photographer.

People know me for my high energy, positivity, and general goofiness. When I’m not shooting you can find me riding my Harley-Davidson through the redwoods, headbanging at show, or sipping whiskey next to a campfire in the Sierras.
