Full Bio
I am a Brooklyn-based documentary photography/visual storyteller, Gen-X er and New Yorker to the core. Currently pivoting toward Unit Stills, I have photographed concerts, in-studio performances, special events, and natural light portraits since 2009.

My love of entertainment, popular culture, personal performance experience, and an insatiable curiosity for "how the sausage is made" have enabled me to focus on the depth and breadth of raw human emotion and power and hopefully capture artists' pure expression.

Much like Cartier-Bresson, I have learned to wait patiently for the in-between moments to cross in front of my lens. From 2010 to 2017, I practiced this craft as the de facto in-house photographer for the Live on KEXP studio sessions at the Cutting Room Studios in NYC. It was the ultimate experience in shooting what I love. And, Unit Stills is the natural next step.

I hold a BFA in Visual Arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.
