Biography

I live and work in the Chicagoland area. I became interested in photography when I was 12. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie Super 27. I developed an interest in pursuing photography and began taking pictures for my school yearbook.

After graduating from College, I studied photography at Stuart-Rodgers Studio in Evanston, Illinois and began working for George Poulos and Associates, Photographers in Skokie, Illinois. During the years after my graduation from college I worked as a freelance photographer for Einzig Photography of New York City and Lerner Newspapers of Chicago.

My work is most influenced by Minor White, Edward Weston and Art Kane. I look for details, order and symmetry that may be overshadowed by the greater scope of the scene. I look for what may be easily overlooked.
