Apparently my passion for story telling began around six years old when I started
"directing" and "plays" for my family after dinner at holiday gatherings with my
younger brothers and cousins as the reluctant cast and crew.
Having grown up in Los Angeles, I was determined to go to see what weather was like
and studied Theater and Film at Boston University's College of Fine Arts.
I really wanted to be a film producer and after graduating with a BFA in film and theatre
I started working in film development (reading screenplays) and production (getting coffee)
for acclaimed filmmakers Barry Sonnenfeld, David Friendly and Kathryn Bigelow
and ended up a few years later in entertainment publicity marketing working
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. I'm especially drawn to theatrical or narrative portraiture.
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, Elton.
