About

Hello, and welcome to the right side of my brain.

I am a photographer and writer working in San Francisco. My work has appeared in such publications as IMPOSE Magazine, popsceneSF, and The Tripwire. This portfolio is a collection of published images as well as more personal projects and fine art series I am or have been working on.

I think there is an inner beauty intrinsic in us all, and I strive to find that in my subjects. I like writing and photographing my own stories because I think people inherently trust you a little more when they've had a chance to shoot the ish with you.

I also shoot mostly in 35mm. It's always fun being in the photo pit with other photographers who are looking at me dubiously as I load a roll into my camera.

If you are so inclined to read my stories in regards to music coverage, clips of my professional writings are archived here.

Education:
Double Bachelor of Arts degrees from San Francisco State University in journalism and fine art photography.

Past art exhibition venues include:
The de Young Museum, Intersection for the Arts, Martin Wong Gallery, Space Gallery, the ARTery, and CCSC Art Gallery in San Francisco.

I am always up for new ideas, collaborations, proposals, projects, trades, and the illustrious paid assignment. Please don't hestitate to email me.
