I've been making things since I was little. I was constantly encouraged to express myself through writing, painting, sculpting and performing. As a young adult I studied acting (I hold an MFA) and went on to perform for a number of years.
I now recognize that my creativity has always been driven by the desire to connect to people. I am infinitely fascinated by what motivates behavior and in finding solutions for better communication.
My eye is specifically trained to recognize a great moment when I see it and my camera is now the tool I use.
I make it a point to practice daily optimism and I naturally look for and find the best in people. Ultimately my work is about drawing out personalities and celebrating them in the environments that define them.
Every person - every portrait - is an opportunity.
