A little bit about me...
I was born in Knoxville, Tennessee and eventually raised in southwest Connecticut (Stamford, CT). From a very young age, I "knew" that I was going to be an architect. I first fell in love with Frank Lloyd Wright and grew up holding onto the simple thought of becoming an architect. I studied and earned a Bachelors of Architecture from the University of Tennessee in 2007. After all that time and study, I decided my path in life was not to become an architect.
I worked in Hospitality for a few years with Wyndham Worldwide and Marriott International. Shortly before my 25th birthday, I felt like I needed to be creative again. After many years of enjoying film, I thought I'd try my hand at being a still photographer. It turned out to be a good choice. I started to create a portfolio quickly with a modest, yet powerful Nikon D90 and seemed to have found a new calling.
I freelanced in southwest Connecticut and the surrounding area for four years, capturing weddings, events and special projects. In the Fall of 2013, I decided that it was time to take on new challenges in a new place. I moved to Los Angeles, CA and still work as a freelance photographer today. I am currently based in El Monte, CA.
In the long term, I plan to transition into filmmaking. I look forward to learning about film, trying out a few ideas already in mind and I certainly intend to keep still photography alive and a fun part of my career.
In September of 2016, I received an email from a publication named Voyage LA magazine. They are a very nice team of journalists and like to promote Los Angeles artists. I was fortunate enough to do an interview with them in which I share much more detail about myself and my story. Feel free to follow the link below.
