About Me


I'm a model-turned-photographer and have been here on MM since 2008 (

I want to help you tell your story with professional, on-brand imagery!

Color, composition, and lighting are the building blocks of creating quality, on-trend images that resonate with you, connect with your audience, evoke feelings, and cultivate necessity.

From capturing exciting live events on location to private portrait sessions in my studio, a variety of expert shooting and post-processing services are available with fast turnaround times at competitive prices and friendly service.

I have been professionally shooting for over 6 years in both Arizona and New York, though I have been a hobby photographer since I was a child in California (where I am originally from).
My early training began in the age of analog, shooting on manual 35mm film cameras and learning traditional darkroom techniques to develop film and create prints. I continued my education obtaining degrees in both Cinematography and Visual Communications.
When digital cameras came into prominence I was gifted with my first ‘point and shoot’, happily using several models of those to take casual snapshots for many years.
I eventually decided to get serious in improving my skills and images, and I acquired my first entry-level DSLR.
Using that to practice shooting portraits and events for friends and family, it finally occurred to me that maybe this could be more than just an enjoyable interest. I then began investing in upgraded equipment, and went back to school to get the additional training necessary to make the jump from passion to profession.
Before that (and overlapping with), I spent most of my occupational life in the tech world largely in systems administration, network architecture, and web developing. I eventually began working as an in-house/staff photographer for various companies, then after a few years I decided to take ‘the big leap’ and transitioned from being an employee to a full-time freelancer, and I have never looked back!

Along with my private clients, I also work with several creative agencies who specialize in pairing brands with the right talent for their photography projects.
I also shoot stock photos for Getty, Adobe, (and other platforms), along with selling my fine-art B&W white prints on Etsy (ModernMonochrome). You can also find my artwork in 90 of the rooms of the the Moxy Hotel in Columbus, Ohio!

I am a proud member of the Professional Photographers of America.

Notable Clients Include:
Sotheby’s, Google, Swarovski, WeWork, Squarespace, Door Dash, American Express, Make Up For Ever, GoldBelly, and counting!
