My work is an expression of an individual’s character and it’s my responsibility to show this in a way that instills confidence and trust; designed to reveal hopes, dreams, warmth and spirit.

I went to Cuyahoga Community College in Cleveland for visual communication and design. I then received a certificate from  the International Center of Photography in New York City. Since then, I’ve assisted photographers, worked in editorial as well as with not-for-profit organizations. I’ve done commercial work for ad agencies, design firms, directly with small and midsized businesses which then led to commissioned artworks for private and institutional collections including the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Mitchells, the Quarter, Oberlin center for the arts, and Cleveland Public Library.

People interest me. I care about what they are committed to or passionate about and I contribute images of people for stories or brands. My process is to find balance between the set up and letting there be room for spontaneity.
