I was born and raised in Evanston, Illinois and am a graduate of Northwestern University. My primary career is in software and internet development.
From 2000-2011 I enjoyed a second career as a professional photographer with a studio out of Los Angeles. My images have been published in both U.S. and international media, and featured on the BBC.
My artwork is primarily portraiture and digitally altered landscapes and places. I strive to capture the humanity of landscape; how humans alter or leave the landscape around us and our imprint on our environment.
My artistic process has just begun when I capture an image, as I then manipulate it digitally to become a distinct piece with many figurative layers.
Preferred Media: jewelry, photography
