I was born in New York City and raised in California. With a BFA in Photography from Art Center College of Design, I worked as an award-winning advertising and editorial photographer for over a decade. At a certain point, I felt my best work was for myself, so I left commercial photography to pursue my own imagery, I got my MFA from Claremont Graduate University and have been teaching and making making work ever since.
My photographs have been included in a large number of solo and group exhibitions in the United States and Internationally. I've also been active in the photo community as a curator and organizer of photo-related events.
