I opened my first studio in Los Angeles after graduating from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. It was at Art Center where I met and then married my wife, partner, and fellow photographer, Marianne Lannen. We have two beautiful daughters, Danae and Samantha.

I became interested in food photography during my studies at Art Center. I've always had a love of great food and wine. Photographing food became a natural extension of this passion.

My fine art work is a progression of my personal interpretation of the visual world. Whether it's reflections of light, color and shape on water; single subject, one dimensional, abstract still life compositions; or deeply rich B&W landscapes; I seek to evoke an emotional response with each series of images.
