As a young and impressionable student of the arts, I was led to pursue the photographic field by my high school teacher, Mr. Martin Hollander. He once said to me, "I think you'd have a chance at this photography thing".
Thank you Mr. Hollander….
The rest is history….
A graduate of Columbia College Chicago. A working assistant for many commercial photographers throughout Chicago set the tone and foundation to channel what I found were my strongest photographic talents. It led me to shoot for clients such as Vosges Haut Chocolate, Paterno Wines International, American Express, ULTA Cosmetics, Bare Escentuals, Andrew Hollingsworth, Chicago Portfolio School, Crate & Barrel and Tandemodus.
I have been a working professional in photography for over 15 years. Colorful and graphic still images, with use of negative space placed within, drives my inspiration and creativity. Inspired because creating is a part of my soul, part passion and part of the exploration. Meeting new people and meeting new challenges makes for an exciting life.
