I made my first photographs as a kid in the San Francisco Bay Area. Kodachrome helped me tell the stories of my teen years; friends, water skiing, skateboarding, surfing in Santa Cruz.
Once in a local bookstore I came across the first edition of a "source book" for photographers. I was captivated by the Advertising photography. That book started me on a path that later led to my studies and graduation from Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara California, with a BA degree in Advertising/Illustration Photography.
From there I sought out the best and brightest Ad photographers. I put all my energy into assisting them and learning everything! I worked with some of the best, from California, New York, Atlanta, Santa Fe, and Minneapolis. They are still my mentors and friends.
My clients are smart business and creative people. I work to become a valuable part of their teams, to help tell the stories of their products, services and companies. They know that I put my heart and soul into every project. I've been at this a while now, producing and shooting jobs professionally for the past 28 years.
