About Me

I worked on the Estée Lauder global account for over 15 years as a beauty/fashion Creative Director while at a top advertising agency in New York. From there, I went on to L’Oréal USA, Maybelline worldwide and other high profile accounts.

Throughout my career I was fortunate enough to work with incredibly talented people, top photographers, super models, hair and makeup, clothing stylists. It wasn't until I moved to San Diego in '06 as a freelance Art Director, I began to get behind the camera. What started as an interest in fine art photography, became a passion.

My work was chosen out of over 400 photographers, to appear in a group show at the WUHO Gallery in LA. I was awarded first place for my portfolio of 10 images, in a vetted exhibition at the LUXE Gallery, San Diego; won first and second place at the Del Mar Photo Exhibition and appeared in a group show at SDMC, San Diego.

My images are shown though out southern California, a collection of which can be viewed at and my email is [email protected]

If you'd like to model, I look for women appropriate for beauty and fashion, clear skin, interesting features, slim. Guys that are in good shape: slim, toned or muscular. No experience is necessary. I am very open to ideas and happy to do TF/trade/test shoots, to benefit each others portfolios. I primarily shoot nudes, it's my forte, but I'm not shy about photographing you clothed. :)

Thanks for reading and I look forward to collaborating with all the great talent out there! Also, while I appreciate all the great retouchers reaching out to me, I'm covered in this area.
