I was born in Pasadena, California. I studied photography at Arizona State University under people like Bill Jenkins, Bill Jay, Tamarra Kaida, and Van Deren Coke and I graduated with a BFA specializing in Photography in 1986.
I have a number of bodies of work and I have had my work shown in over 30 exhibitions nationally and internationally. In 1991 I published the book "Santa Anita" documenting the Santa Anita Racetrack in Arcadia, California. I also have prints in a number of permanent collections including the Fogg Museum at Harvard, The University of New Mexico Museum, and Cal State Long Beach's Museum. In 2014 my Pasadena PD series was featured on sites such as Slate, Feature Shoot, Paris Review, and NPR. I am currently negotiating with a publisher for a book of my law enforcement photographs.
