About Me

When I was playing football at Mizzou my coach pulled me aside and wanted to know why I was almost flunking out  "A's and F's you're lucky  you're eligible What are you doing?",  I mentioned the A's were fine art classes ya know the stuff i enjoy last semester, he laughed and said, “Okay, well, guess what? You’re an art major now.” Thanks to my coach, I was pointed in the right direction.

I’ve always been an artist. I grew up with acrylic paints, colored pencils, Nikons and Hasselblad's in my hands. I still draw every chance I get... now it's just storyboarding. I spent my childhood on the sets of Hollywood motion pictures with my father a producer and in salons/makeup trailers with my mom on whatever location the production took us. I grew to love the industry.

Football also provided a work ethic second to none. One of my ad clients who recently ran my add as the back cover in the New York Times Magazine said, “You are the hardest working photographer I have ever met." that is quite a compliment.

After college football, I progressed to the NFL. Once my time with the NFL ended, I opened a spa for my mom cause it sounded like fun and we had a great time running it for 15 years giving me extensive experience in the beauty industry only an industry insider can appreciate

I began by doing web development in 2002. After hiring several photographers to create images for client websites, I quickly realized as an artist I could do a much better job. This realization is what got me into commercial photography, years later. In 2009 I completed my masters in web development. I quickly realized I love the story telling side of advertising and marketing more than the programing side. So the fun continues with a camera in hand.

I shoot with a massive medium format digital camera.  I tether my camera to my laptop during shoots so we get immediate feedback. Im a post production guru so my work is ready for your viewing pleasure almost immediately. As a fine artist I produce all the work myself on my industry leading large format printers so the product is always fantastic and ready for gallery display. At the end of the day I am a people pleaser who works hard and produces gallery worthy products.
