I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world,
working with clients around the world; telling their unique stories in very unique ways.
Along the way, I’ve had the pleasure of working with many, many talented photographers, directors and imagemakers.
I became envious of their art and craft. At first, I saw it as a means of reducing my stress-filled life.
As a Chief Creative Officer at the world’s largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction.
So I bought a camera. And then another. And another.
My new hobby and daily “creative exercise regimen” quickly turned into a joy-filled and all consuming passion.

I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves
despite the intrusion and intimidation that a serious-looking camera often represents.

I like finding and sharing things I find.
Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things.

I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic.

I also enjoy taking something ordinary and making it something well beyond that.
(To paraphrase Ansel Adams: “…making pictures, not just taking them.”

One thing led to another and now I’m published, winning awards and having my work shown in galleries.

Happiness.

So here I am.
Open for business.
And open for any adventure that needs an image or two.

If you desire something special, let me know.
