Who I Am

A New York-based (but often traveling) event and publicity photographer, specializing in on-location candids and natural, in-the-moment portraits and promotional shots.


What I Do

My background is in marketing for entertainment, with a focus on performance and promo photography. I also handle a wide range of portraits, special events and other personal and corporate shoots. My goal is to provide lively, character-driven visuals that tell a story and capture the moment in a memorable, colorful style.

Since most of my jobs require me to be extremely unobtrusive, I can work quietly in the background without distracting those around me, while still being friendly and approachable enough to ensure that even the most camera-shy people are comfortable with me being there.


What I Love

I immensely enjoy every aspect of photography and the way that it allows me to look at the world. Every time I pick up my camera is a chance to try something new. And how many other jobs actually require you to rock out at a concert, smash a birthday cake, tell campfire tales over s'mores and dress for the zombie apocalypse all in the same month?
