About me

I was born and raised in Maryland where sign language was my first language and I thought I was deaf until the age of 4 (I'm not). I moved to NYC when I was 17 and have a BFA in photography from Pratt Institute. I have been professionally shooting for more than half my life and once almost died while on assignment in the red light district in Calcutta.

I currently reside in Austin, TX and am a boy mom & brewery wife. I shoot full time, love whiskey and true crime and watch way too much tv. I am avaialble for travel worldwide and I never check a bag.

Clients include: Delta Airlines, Oracle, Texas Monthly, Spin Magazine, Time Out New York Kids, Alcade Magazine, Southern Living, Jetsetter, The Brooklyn Brewery, St Elmo Brewing Company and countless families and individuals all over the world.
