I’ve been a professional photographer since I was 17. I started out shooting fashion in New York, then when I moved to LA to be an actor, I supported myself doing headshots.

I’ve always taken pictures. Even while I was an actor making great money in commercials, some film & TV, I still loved taking pictures.

In addition to photography, I write & direct. My last film won some awards and got a distribution deal. I’ve directed a live multi-cam TV event, music videos, and recently a commercial for a film school.

And I still love taking pictures and working with actors in this way. I always will. When you show up, I’m going to direct you, we’re going to have fun, and you’ll get great photos.
