I'm a third generation photographer. My grandfather was a professional in the field as well as my mother. I took a liking to film and studied cinematography at Columbia College Chicago. After graduating in 2009, both passion and occupation have kept me busy in the fields of photography and cinematography and filmmaking in general. In my free time I'm usually shooting with a film camera, usually medium format or large format. I like to embrace shadows, natural dark tones, and I like the stories that faces and figures tell.
