What inspires your work?
My inspiration comes from everyday observations of people, light, design and textiles.

Where are you originally from?
LA, where I learned photography in High School.

When you aren't creating art, what do you spend your time doing?
Keeping fit and healthy through excercise (i.e. running, cardio and weight training) is very important to me. I love to travel and explore different parts of the world.

How did you come up with the process for your work?
For many years I carried around loads of equipment and had to go through the time consuming process of working in a dark room. Converting to digital using the Iphone 7 plus and X’s technology as well as Adobe Photoshop has sped up my process tremendously.

Analog or digital?

Who are your role models/idols?
Bill Garnett, a professor at Cal University greatly impacted my passion for esoteric aerial photography. Dorothy Elaine’s abilitiy to capture a moment without revealing a subject is another major inspiration.
