Whether walking through my neighborhood or exploring a city half a world away, I create a visual dialogue of my surroundings.

I'm drawn to the scenes that give a place life, the people that give it character, and the insignificant details that give it depth. Sights, smells, tastes, and textures flood my system with an overwhelming declaration of place. With camera in hand, those senses are transformed into photographs.

I've been privileged to collaborate with great clients on amazing projects. Their support and dedication has allowed me to produce poignant storytelling imagery that illustrates each narrative.

I'm available for assignment around the world or around the corner. Having already visited over 35 countries and 40 states, I'm always looking forward to the next adventure. Contact me for rates or to estimate a project.
