My home is in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I’ve been fortunate to have cultivated a creative career I truly enjoy. As a senior graphic designer and multimedia producer for 20+ years, photography has always been at my side. That sideline passion evolved to become my obsession after studying the works of Alex Webb and Nikos Economopoulos. Their use of color, geometry, levels and layers alongside dynamic candid gestures in their compositions were an epiphany, and remain to be profound examples I strive towards.
My focus is on capturing the unscripted experiences of people navigating their lives in vibrant settings – utilizing the interplay of light, color and shadow. As a candid street-style and documentary photographer, I gravitate towards the genuine, unfiltered moments that shape individuality in both my hometown and abroad.
