About Me

I have the pleasure of doing two things that I really love in life:  improv and photography. I'm extremely fortunate in the sense that I've photographed people who are just now becoming known to the rest of the world.
I want to keep up that trend.
I love everything about photography.
I'm a badass at lighting, and love capturing people's eyes.

I've been shooting since the age of 18.
I attended Columbia College for a Bachelor Of Fine Arts Degree in photography and interned at Playboy here in Chicago.

After graduating, I started making money off of product photography.

Surprisingly, that experience in lighting objects has transferred over to what I currently do, which is photographing headshots, glamor, and portraits.

I'm here to meet more models for my personal work, and to get feedback from models on what works for them.
I love 1940s Hollywood photography (see Jennifer's photo), pin-ups, and glamor (see Lori's photo).

I want to be the best glamor photographer ever.  Period.  I want to become so ridiculously good that everyone wants to be photographed by me. Not simply because I take great photos of "perfect" people, but because I'm great at making everyone look good.

While I take the results of making great photos very seriously, my number one life goal is to have fun.  My worst day of working as a photographer is still better then my best day of doing anything else.  If you don't have fun while shooting with me, I consider the shoot a minor failure.

Please feel free to drop me a line here, or contact me at

If you're a model, tell me what you think of my work.  I want to push myself towards my goal.
