“Working to make more than just a good picture; grateful to bring ideas to life that help people smile more, stay curious, and use our endless imaginations.”

Growing up, life was about chasing moments of lightness and laughter. I continue to find that same sense of joy and satisfaction by pushing myself to always see, do and learn more as a photographer. It’s what keeps me in the moment, ensuring that a childlike curiosity is reflected in everything I do and create.

My background in math and science means I do a lot of research to bring images into the world that feel universal and true, even if they can often be laugh out loud funny. Because humor always exposes a kind of truth; and photography does as well.

I seek to shoot subjects both simple and complex because we know that’s how life is. I love to surround myself with and collaborate with creative people and brands and search for the end goal - for me what makes a good picture is really thinking about who the audience is and how the image should feel and where it’s going to live. I take an empathic approach when sweating the details and am always wearing a strategic hat when it comes to commercial work.

Be it product or people, I always try to top my personal best and bring my love of the photographic image to everything I do. I strive to refine and be aware of what’s happening in the world because I always want to be better. By surrounding myself with a like-minded team, I create images that intrigue, make people smile, and remind them of the beautiful world we live in. I have an immense amount of gratitude for the work that I do, and feel extremely lucky and thankful for all of the amazing collaboration through the years and look forward to many more; I never take this work for granted. For me, it’s about seeing the forest, the trees, and everything in between. I love to create work that makes people feel curious; that makes them want to see and know more, explore more, and use their imaginations.
