I first began my lifelong love of photography when I was a sophomore in high school in Manhattan Beach, Ca. Realizing it was a passion I couldn't ignore, I attended San Francisco State University where I graduated with a degree in Journalism focusing in photojournalism. For the past 10 years I have worked as a photojournalist in Silicon Valley shooting a wide variety of assignments from editorial to corporate portraits, news, event photography, lifestyle, as well as producing videos and writing. I love immersing myself in communities and photographing all the different types of people and places which make places unique. I also have a soft spot for photographing animals and nature. I have received recognition for my work from the California Newspaper Publisher's Association (CNPA) as well as the Peninsula Press Club. I am available for editorial or commercial work in the San Francisco Bay Area.
