I’ve loved making art since I was a kid, but paging through fashion, music and entertainment magazines as a teenager made me want to be a photographer. My walls and ceiling were covered in magazine pages. The photos seemed like another world full of artists, actors, eccentrics, musicians and cool people. Although my hometown of Cincinnati was a great place to grow up, all those magazine photos compelled me to move to the “bright lights and big city”. After getting my BFA in Photography from Ohio University, I briefly worked in Miami Beach and then moved to Los Angeles(Venice). I’ve always loved making studio and environmental portraits. In the last several years, I’ve turned a long time love of architecture, interior design and movies into shooting for designers, architects and motion production companies. When I'm not working, I love making music(noise) in my garage studio with friends, sipping a tasty belgian ale at a favorite haunt or enjoying SoCal with my wife Gina.
