Los Angeles, CA, USA
I'm an artist / photographer currently based in Los Angeles. I graduated with a BFA in Photography + Imaging from Art Center College of Design and have vast experience shooting both editorially as well as commercially. I'm heavily focused on visual story telling through creating narrative and concept based images. My photographs examine the human condition and the connection to the world in which we call home. I am fascinated by human connection, language, communication, and the fragmentation that inherently exists within the limits of what it means to be human.
I have always been more interested in showing what an experience felt like rather than just showing what something looked like. Images are made up of the base layer of data and literal information, but I always want my images to go beyond that layer, and show the emotional experience of what a moment feels like. Photography lets you take an experience and express it in such a way that it is felt as a human story, and not just specific to one individual person or context. As human beings we all tap into the same emotions, and as an artist I love the challenge of translating those emotions into visuals.
My images have been seen everywhere from magazines to billboards in Times Square to a 52,000sq ft building wrap on the Las Vegas strip.
