WHAT'S YOUR PERSONAL MISSION?
I’m passionate about learning and growing as a photographer, taking on new challenges, and working with people who are great at what they do. I first picked up a camera as a photojournalist, and I’ve always loved the way that it allowed me to get out and explore the world and learn new things.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING AND HOW DID YOU GET TO WHERE YOU ARE TODAY?
I primarily shoot advertising photography. I got my start as a documentary photographer, shooting for newspapers, later moving to magazines, and finally commercial photography. It feels like things have come full circle, with lots of my advertising clients looking for story telling work that feels not to far from the approach to photography in my days of working as a photojournalist.
WHAT IS YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE?
One of my proudest achievements of 2014 was pulling off the most extensive project of my career on a shoot that spanned 17 different cities over 6 weeks, Whirlwind American Tour with Chase.
ANY PERSON YOU WANT TO GIVE A SHOUTOUT TO FOR YOUR GOWTH IN THE INDUSTRY?
There are so many people who have supported me, offered inspiration, feedback and advice. If I had to name just one person today, it would be art buyer Jamie Appelbaum. She’s been a great mentor and I am incredibly grateful for her help and advice.
WHO INTRODUCED YOU TO ADHESIVE? WHEN WAS YOUR FIRST EVENT?
Nick Onken first introduced me to Adhesive, and the first event I attended was one of the Adhesive’s first, circa 2010.
