I was born in San Diego and have been involved in the photographic arts since 1995. I graduated from SDSU and have an amazing family with 2 young boys and a beautiful life partner. My early creative inspirational mentors include Helmut Newton, but love all the great masters. I have a passion for perfection and although I believe in post production, I treat every shot as if i had a large format film camera. Practice makes perfect and i don't consider my self a master, since you can never stop learning. I enjoy making beautiful and provocative images and look forward to working with you.
