About Me

I’m a photojournalist with a passion for exploration, learning and collaborative co-creation.  I've been selling my work for several decades now – sculpture, painting, bronze, illustration, photography... you name it.  I’ve written several books on the creative process, another on design and ran a record-breaking Kickstarter a couple of years back.

Lately I’ve fallen in love with street photography and the opportunity it gives to dive into the subject’s spirit and bring out a compelling and moving narrative.  My current body of work is focusing on taking the next step toward bringing that feeling of candidness and openness to my work in the studio. 

I value intelligence, creativity and integrity in myself and others and have high standards for professionalism in everything I do.  Beyond that, however, I also appreciate connection, collaboration and fun.  As model and photographer we are both playing roles on a stage… if it isn’t downright fun then why take the time to do it?

I enjoy working with models of all levels of experience and am happy to work with newcomers interested in expanding their portfolio if there's a resonance.  If that's you, you’re in the Bay Area and have sweetness of spirit then by all means drop me a line, let's explore.
