I'm a native Californian with no tan, living in Los Angeles for the last 35 years. It definitely is a love/hate relationship.
I work as a graphic artist for Conan O'Brien's talk show. Prior to that, I freelanced, making logos and graphics for tv shows like "Dancing with the Stars," "American Idol," and "Access Hollywood." I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Performance and Spanish from Indiana University and a Master of Arts degree in Broadcast Journalism from USC.
Photography has always been a big part of my life. In junior high school, I was the school newspaper's photographer; everything was shot with a Polaroid Land Camera. I bought my first camera (Nikon FE) with student loan money and never looked back. I saw photography as a necessary hobby in the beginning, and over the years have explored conceptual themes in my work, creating bodies of work that have been exhibited nationally and internationally.
