I earned a degree in Fine Art Photography from Wright State University in Dayton, OH, which I attended on a portfolio scholarship.
I have worked as a professional photographer and exhibited in Ann Arbor, Seattle, Nashville, Los Angeles and Miami. I have been fortunate to receive numerous awards for my photography and to be 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 equipment, and occasionally print in the darkroom. Some prints are then hand-painted with oils and colored pencils.
I was selected to be a member of the Redmond WA arts commission, a photographer at The Frist Museum of Art in Nashville, TN and a Fashion and Documentary photographer for Los Angeles Fashion week, MIAMI FASHION WEEK, and mIAMI SWIM WEEK.
