I have worked as a professional photographer in Los Angeles, Nashville, and Seattle,receiving numerous awards for my photography and have been published in several magazines and newspapers. During my career, I have been a student of and have been influenced by several notable artists in the industry.
I differentiate myself from many "point and shoot" photographers by my Fine Arts training, education, and experiences, as well as my technical abilities and critical eye that combine to capture those perfectly composed or candid shots.
I shoot with Leica camera equipment, and occasionally print in the darkroom. Some prints are then hand-painted with oils and colored pencils.
I have a degree in Fine Art Photography from Wright State University in Dayton, OH, which I attended on a portfolio scholarship.
