The Journal


I’m more than a photographer. I’m a problem solver. An ideator. I’ve never met a creative challenge I didn’t like. I’m curious about places, things and — most of all — people. I find them fascinating. Their interests, their passions, their dreams.

I’m a storyteller. Which I always have been. From working with newspapers and magazines to corporations and creative agencies — using my ideas to make their ideas come to life. Whether working with real people or hired talent, I create well-crafted visual solutions that conjure questions, rattle hearts, evoke laughter, and sometimes even prompt tears. My experiences have taught me to work under tight deadlines, to stay cool under pressure, to focus on the tiniest of details with an eye on the bigger picture, and to collaborate well with others.
