Father ◼︎ Photographer ◼︎ Artist 

Hi Everyone! It’s always a little nerve-wrecking to talk about oneself but I am definitely excited for you to get to know me a little bit! So the first thing you should definitely know about me is that I am the Father to a wonderful little girl who dreams of growing up to be a Scientist and as of late - a Chef! She is my driving force and the biggest reason for me to pursue my passions. The next thing you should know is that I am a HUGE Star Wars Fanboy, Game of Thrones Die-hard and Disneyland Pass-holder! Star Wars is the reason I decided to go to film school. Game of Thrones continues to show me how narrative story telling works by weaving imagery together and Disneyland is where I get to be a kid again with my little one! 

So onto my work - I began my career in photography in Larry Kings home office. It was my very first assignment as a photographer, to capture Larry and his wife in their home. This first job blessed me with the opportunity of being a ‘Published Photographer.’ Seeing my images printed in the pages of a magazine was a dream come true. This lead to many more assignments capturing CEOs and Celebrities with their guards down, outside of a studio and in there homes, their offices, their places of business. Capturing them in an authentic and vulnerable state. This sparked a craving for more, which ultimately lead me to Wedding Photography.

Combining my own personal artistry with the formal training I received in Film School, I am able to capture and deliver images to my clients that I know they will cherish for a lifetime. Images that will last the test of time and be passed down to their children. 

I cannot wait to hear from you and especially to have you in front of my camera!
