I'm a photographer currently based in Los Angeles who graduated with my BFA in Photography + Imaging from Art Center College of Design. I have vast experience with shooting music and music journalism in addition to being heavily focused on story telling through creating narrative and concept based images. My photographs examine the human condition and the connection to the world in which we call home.

Photography for me is about being able to explore and express a connection or passion through the creation of an image-- whether that be with a subject or with a narrative or an idea.

My photographs have invariably been more about human experience than about the landscape or object. For as long as I can remember I've been incessantly obsessed with the human condition, and when I find that mirrored in a landscape or object, that's the photograph I want to make. I am fascinated by language, communication, and the fragmentation that inherently exists within the limits of what it means to be human. Using genres to label photographs has never made much sense to me for this reason, all of my images are portraits of what it means to be human-- whether that’s found in a landscape image, a still life or photo illustration, a portrait, or a music photograph.
