Born in Venice Beach, Ca. and raised between Los Angeles and the wilderness of the Los Padres National Forest, my work is a fusion of the urban experience and the insights afforded by the natural world.
I started my career working as the manager for a photography studio with photo lab and darkroom when I was twenty two. Within a short time, I was also photographing portraits and events and began exhibiting my work.
My fine art exhibitions have been landscape, nude, mixedmedia and documentary projects. I have presented at Brooks Institute, served as juror for the photography branch of the Ojai Arts Center and collaborated with the Ojai Arts Commission and non profit arts organizations to establish a local arts grant.
