My passion for story telling began around seven years old when I started
"directing" and "plays" for my family after dinner at holiday gatherings with my
younger brothers and cousins as a sometimes reluctant cast and crew.
Having grown up in Los Angeles, I was determined to go to college far away
and chose East Coast winters instead of Sunny LA. I studied Theater and Film
at Boston University's College of Fine Arts. I began working in film development
and production for acclaimed filmmakers Barry Sonnenfeld, David Friendly
and Kathryn Bigelow.
My sincere belief in the significance of image paved the way to a transition into
entertainment publicity marketing where I worked with award winning
filmmakers and iconic global brands.
I started my photography career as a unit stills photographer on set for film and
television as well as entertainment reportage for the Associated Press, all the
while making commissioned portraits and creating personal work. Over ten years
of experience in the entertainment industry and especially in public relations
and marketing before photography, have given me tremendous
insight into my clients' photographic needs now.
Fueled by the desire to capture an individual's unique beauty, I love the intimate
creative exchange with each subject and the collaboration with the other artists
involved with creating the image and I'm especially drawn to theatrical or narrative
Based in Los Angeles, I spend as much time as I can in New York and Paris
with my wife, toddler son and Shih-Poo.
