I’m a Bay Area portrait, fashion, and commercial photographer with roots in Chicago and Idaho. 

I love shooting gritty urban landscapes and vast expanses of wilderness, but I’m happiest when I’m photographing people, no matter the environment. 

I shoot lookbooks and brand content for both creators and curators, editorials for online magazines, and portraits for local performers. My wife and I also travel regularly, and I’m pretty sure I’m slowly driving her insane by turning every trip into one long photoshoot. 

Thanks for checking out my work. Let's create something amazing together.
