I first picked up a camera when I was 10 years old. It was one of those $5 dollar 110 film cameras. I remember as if it was yesterday being consumed by how interesting and dynamic everything looked through the viewfinder, it felt as if it was the first time that I ever meditated on specific shapes and compositions. I was hooked, soon after my father gave me a 35 mm Canon Eos and I started shooting everything and anything, specifically honing my timing and skills by shooting sports, specifically skiing and professional baseball. During High School I took some photography courses and continued with courses in college at the Lorenzo de Medici Institute in Italy, and the University of Wisconsin Madison, then following graduation I started to shoot and travel around the world.
I have exhibited my work in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and at several galleries and art spaces throughout Los Angeles.
In addition to being a photographer I am also a filmmaker and founder of Asia Media Lab, a video production company that specializes in creating short dynamic videos for NGOs in the region.
