"I believe that you've got to love your work so much that it is all you want to do." - Richard Avedon
People who know me as a photographer are surprised to hear that I once lived another life in the corporate world. I was successful then, but not in the creative ways my inner-artist longed for. I found photography and never looked back. It's my poetry. It's the place where I'm at my best.
"I really believe there are things nobody would see if I didn't photograph them." - Diane Arbus
I think of my style as Cinematic Photojournalism--a blend of sophistication and unfiltered moments. I consider everything; from the visual story being told to the underlying message. Whether it's commercial work for clients, a once in a lifetime wedding or just a simple portrait, I strive to add something memorable that will stand the test of time. It's truly the ultimate compliment if you can't stop looking at a photo of mine.
