Autobiography

I was born and raised in Southern California where during elementary school I attended an afterschool program called Children’s Artwork Shop to guide creativity for kids. As a child, I always dreamt of making movies and making pictures. I wanted to put the silly little daydreams in my head onto the screen and bring them to life. I always saw myself as an artist, and knew early on that I would have an out of the box creative career. I've always loved that mysterious little box called a camera, could see just about the way that we do. How was this possible? My parents were avid photographers so there were always cameras around.
I earned a degree in film and televsion from Loyola Marymount University in 2004 and worked for several years in television production in Los Angeles. In 2008, I packed up my car and moved to San Francisco to pursue an MFA in Photography, I fell in love with the wonderful people, amazing food and unique culture and decided to call San Francisco home. In 2014, The American Society of Cinematographers invited me to join their Master Class in Hollywood, CA. My time is now evenly divided between still photography and cinematography assignments. I have had the opportunity to work with leading brands such as ESPN, Warner Brothers, Lifetime Television, American Express, H&M, Levi’s, Mercedes Benz AMG, AT&T, Buick and many more.  My greatest profesional reward comes when I get to look thorugh a camera and craft images to bring a clients vision into fruition.
