about me

Raised in a home with an adventure journalist father and designer mother influenced my sense of curiosity, motivation, and daredevilish tendencies. My passions for skateboarding, punk rock, travel, and various two-wheeled machines have been valuable outlets for practice, influencing my style and the way I frame and photograph my subjects. I believe in a physical connection to objects which attracts me to the texture and life of film, but I also recognize and appreciate the merits of digital. Experienced in the practice of more mobile opportunistic photography, I am also very familiar with working in a studio and shooting products and still life. 

I graduated from college in Olympia, WA with a degree in Function and Design, and am currently working on my Masters of Fine Art at Parsons, New York City. Challenged to create with function and purpose, I am practiced at problem solving, a skill I see necessary in and outside of the studio.

I live in Harlem with my dog, fire escape and girlfriend.


In addition to my photography, I am a practiced and experienced industrial designer. Some of my design work can be seen by clicking here and here
