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 cast and crew.
Having grown up in Los Angeles, I was determined to go to college in the East Coast
and studied Theater and Film
at Boston University's College of Fine Arts. I wanted to be a film producer and after graduating
with a BFA in film and theatre I started 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.
I love the intimate creative exchange with each subject and the collaboration with the other artists
involved with creating the image. I am happiest when I'm capturing an individual's unique beauty
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 French wife, toddler son and Shi-Poo rescue.
