About Me


Born in 1971, I was fortunate enough to grow up in a time and family where photography was part of our every day life. My grandfather was a hobbyist photographer in occupied Europe and an amateur videographer. My parents were always enthusiast and supportive of my photography as a child, and there was never a point in time when I did not have a camera. Photography is an important part of who I am as a person, and I approach it with passion, love and complete focus. From 2005 - 2012 I owned an award winning, international, high definition video production company, and have produced video and photography in over 10 different countries on four continents. I majored at the University of Nevada, Reno, in English and Art, graduating with an English/Photography degree in 2013, and again with an Art degree in 2018. Currently i am enrolled in the Masters of Photography program at Academy of Art University is San Francisco, CA and I teach all genres of photography at Truckee Meadows Community College in Reno, Neavada, as well as offering private instruction.
