My photography career didn't start with my eye, but with my thumb.
After a degree in political science from SDSU and working on campaigns, I changed my mind about how I wanted to change the world - starting with myself. I simply started hitchhiking down the highway looking for adventure and self-realization. Adventure I found plenty of, but I didn't expect my life to be changed in another way when a friend in New York City gave me a camera on my journey.
4 years and 46 countries later I returned to San Francisco by way of my thumb to formally study photography and quickly started shooting for local newspapers, which led to product photography, headshots, automotive, and fashion; all-the-while apprenticing with top commercial photographers from around the world.
I now shoot a wide array of lifestyle, travel, fashion, portraits, music and events as well as continually working on personal projects documenting the heart and soul of the American Southwest.
