I have a strong desire to be creative which has been with me throughout my life. I started playing guitar at 9 years old and it wasn't long before I began writing songs. I spent many of the following years in bands performing up until I was 35. I still wrote and played but a shift was occurring. I then found photography in a somewhat unusual path.
In 1993 I took up skydiving and during the following 18 years of jumping I started shooting video and photos in the air. My interest in photography rekindled and I have been pursuing it seriously ever since. I discovered that I have a huge passion for light and capturing a special moment in time.
As luck would have it I ended up modeling for 2 years in New York which gave me a lot of experience on the other side of the camera. After photographing a wide variety of subjects I found myself drawn to shooting people and feel that I have a knack for catching personality. Now the modeling background helps me coach my clients in getting their best in an image.
