About Me

I was born and grew up in Toronto, Canada. Never quite sure what I wanted in life, I fell into many things by accident. Photography, Web Concept development and Creative Direction are just a few examples.

I played drums in a few punk rock groups, one of which, the Existers, was produced by John Cale. Another, the Poles, had a semi-successful hit called Telex Love. Afterward, I entered Carleton University where I studied Architecture. I then worked in several companies, including Webb Zerafa Menkes & Housden, best known for designing the CN Tower in Toronto.

After a serious accident where I fell from a five meter mezzanine, I literally fell into photography. There was a photographer taking photos at the party and I landed on his toe!!!

My second shoot was an advertising campaign in Toronto. While in Toronto, I was the first Canadian photographer to shoot Kim Alexis, which I did for the cover of Chatelaine.

I moved to Los Angeles and stayed there for just over a year before moving to New York. In NY, I shot quite a few campaigns as well as the Dayton Hudsons Christmas book with Andi McDowell, Elle MacPherson and Brook Shields. I also shot several covers for Vogue South America.

I then moved to Milan where I shot for Harper's Bazaar and Cosmopolitan. I came back to Toronto for a short stint before a friend suggested that I try Paris.

After six weeks in Paris, I was given an opportunity to shoot the Haute Couture for L'Officiel. Since then, Paris has become my base.

I also compose and write Pop-Rock music for several artists.

I also consult as a creative director for worldwide agencies and clients.
