I grew up in Virginia, California, and England and now reside in Yorktown in southern Virginia. I enjoy the artistic opportunity that architectural, interior design, and hotel photography offers, and try to create “art” with every image.

Photographing a building or room isn’t just about documenting what it looks like, it’s also about capturing a mood that can elevate the image to a higher level.

Besides photography I love to play tennis, play the piano, and live a healthy life-style.

Music was a big part of my early life and I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston, graduating with a B.A. in film-scoring. I spent some time there writing jingles but then moved to Los Angeles where I fell in love with acting, appearing in several movies and TV shows in small parts. Along with my writing partner, we wrote, directed, and produced several plays and short films, winning “Best of Festival” in several film festivals.

My photography has been the beneficiary of all these creative endeavors throughout my life, and I wouldn’t be the photographer I am today without those invaluable experiences.

Imagination, creativity, technical know-how, and passion are the pillars of what I do now.
