I have been making photographs since I was in elementary school. At sixteen, I started photographing sports and news for the local daily newspaper in my home town. I eventually got my BFA degree in Photography and Design at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts). I was a staff technical advisor at Nikon for 11 years and teach photography, Lightroom, Photoshop and related subjects at photography schools in Southern California. I have done CD and DVD cover photos for major music and comedy artists, cover aviation for several international aerospace publications and have also done marketing photography for major hotel chains.
