I grew up in a rural town in the mountains west of Denver, CO where I started taking photography classes in the 7th grade and continuing through university. I have spent countless hours in the darkroom and loved every second of it. But, I never thought I could "make it" as a photographer so I pursued a degree in art history instead and immersed myself in the gallery and museum world. I got a job at the Robischon Gallery in Denver where I was exposed to tons of great art, artists, institutions, and patrons. After graduating I moved on to New York City continuing in the gallery world. Eventually moving back to Denver to open my own contemporary design gallery. But I never could get over the desire to 'make'. After closing my gallery I started working as a commercial photographer and video producer. Ever since the 7th grade (30 years) I have been making photographs for myself - never sharing them with anyone outside of family. These photos have never been exhibited.
