A B O U T M E.
Following a 23 year career as an award-winning designer, art director and
creative director in retail and packaging design – I redirected my creative
passions towards photography. I had always loved concepting for shoots and
collaborating with photographers on how best to pull shoots together.
Photography had always been another creative outlet, now I’m fortunate to do
it every day. My passions are portrait, lifestyle and product. Oh–and surfing too!!
With any assignment, I bring well-honed instincts and an artistic vision
from my decades of design thinking. That subtle expression, a shift in posture,
or even a sudden burst of motion that reveals something true and beautiful–
THIS gives me goose bumps each time I shoot. Having now worked on both sides
of a shoot, I'm innately tuned in to the details that make for a well-planned
shoot and a happy client. I have a collaborative spirit and openness to what’s
possible–there’s no shoot too big or too small. My team of assistants, stylists
and producers are ready for any assignment near or far. Or, if it’s just you
and I, that’s good too.
Originally from the Midwest, I graduated from MCAD, moved to New York,
North Carolina and finally to Seattle. I’ve been in the Pacific Northwest for
almost 20 years. I live in West Seattle, across Elliot Bay from downtown Seattle.
Along side my wife and our 12-year-old lab, we spend our nights and weekends
exhausting our 2 boys to little or no avail.
Thanks for having a look around, I hope we can work together soon.
