I was born and raised in Los Angeles, where I currently reside. I graduated from the University of California at Berkeley, and promptly left the country to spend a year photographing the people and sights of West and Central Africa. I have also lived in South America in order to photograph the people of Ecuador.
I have worked extensively in the social work field, and am honored to document the lives and important moments of others. I have been shooting portraits since 1993, and photographing weddings since 2004, and use both photojournalistic and fashion-influenced styles. I love to learn about the lives of my clients, and to create images that reflect their personalities.
