Thanks for stopping by. A little about me: I love taking photos! My camera is my connection to the world.

As a teenager, back in the days of film, I built a makeshift darkroom in my parents’ basement where I spent hours lost in my images and the pungent odors of the developer and stop baths. I miss those days, but I love the immediacy of digital. 

I have held many positions with various titles in my career, but none ever seemed quite right. I felt like a nomad wandering from place to place, never comfortable, never happy. Photography was my first love and one I never got over. From my time working in the Los Angeles feature film scene to developing new and exciting ways for people to engage with Xbox at Microsoft, working in other visual media felt like a natural progression. But away from work, I was always photographing, always documenting.

The spark to jump back into photography came from photographing my absolute favorite subjects: my wife and our two incredible daughters.

I have made Seattle my home because there is no more beautiful place in the world to shoot. It’s a photographer’s paradise. I am excited to help you preserve your precious moments, document your corporate events, or make your products shine. Reach out and let’s get started!

It has been a pleasure to provide photographic services to commercial clients including Microsoft, Sprint, Monster Design, Emily's Granola, Grayling Public Relations, and Chin Music Press.

In my spare time, I pursue other passions of running marathons, watching movies, traveling, and being with my family. 

I am proud to serve as a volunteer photographer for Soulumination, a non-profit dedicated to celebrating the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening conditions by providing professional photographs of these special individuals and their families, free of charge. The life-affirming photographs of Soulumination are an enduring, positive record of the child's life, and provide a loving legacy for the children of parents lost to terminal illness.
