I am a German-American artist/photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles and Berlin. I received my BFA from the School of the Art Institute Chicago and my MFA at the Art Center College of Design. I currently teach History of Photography, Digital Photography and Photojournalism at Los Angeles City College. I started out as a lab printer and worked for 12 years as a music/entertainment photojournalist. My photographs have been featured in various publications including Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair and the Los Angeles Times. I've continued my art practice throughout my working career, exhibiting nationally and internationally.
