something like a mission statement:
I got my start in music photography. One of the things that drew me to capturing that kind of energy was the visual change that took place when a person or group got lost in the performance. To me, it was a moment of vulnerability and a slit in the fabric of the presented facade. I ate that shit up. It was addicting. I still seek those same open, honest, and meaningful moments where for a fraction of a second the person in front of me forgets they're being photographed and lets the present come into focus. Whether it be your wedding day, an hour spent with your family, or just a headshot session, I guarantee to provide you with meaningful and honest imagery.

I have been documenting the hip-hop mecca Doomtree for about 11 years and was published in their book a few years back. You can find more of my documentation with these friends here. Need live concert photos or promotional band work? I love working with musicians to come up with the perfect concept for their sound.
In 2011 I interned for Alec Soth, an internationally acclaimed photographer and in 2012, Springboard for the Arts, an amazing local arts resource center. These are both inspirations-- visit their websites often.
Whether it be the newly engaged, actors, musicians, new families, or old— working together to remember a beautiful moment or to express an idea is something I live for.
