ARCHITECTURE, HOSPITALITY, PORTRAITS, and DOCUMENTARY
I’ve always been fascinated by how people create and how things work. I started making pictures in my teens and never stopped. Career paths are rarely linear, and before I turned into a professional photographer and educator, I was a contractor and kitchen designer.
Experience taught me to value collaboration, respect craft, to give back, revel in the pleasure in producing things, to aim for clarity, and, without getting too precious about it, beauty of some kind. Everything I do aims for the sweet spot where craft and design and purpose combine without a seam.
A few obsessions: Design, history, music, science, movies, and trying to understand what went on inside the mind of my Wheaten Terrier, Whiskey.
I’m sure he felt the same about me.
Finally, not to be controversial, I am also a strong proponent for the use of the Oxford Comma.
Many more pictures are on Instagram and Tumblr.
