About & Contact


I am a portrait and documentary-style photographer living in Durham, North Carolina.

Before landing in North Carolina, my career began in Minneapolis, Minnesota where I worked as an assistant and photographer on advertising campaigns involving portraiture, product and lifestyle photography.

I enjoyed commercial production, but was drawn to photojournalism and worked for more than a decade as a staff photographer for various news organizations.

Now I combine the collaborative problem-solving skills from my commercial experience with the storytelling approach of the editorial world to best serve any project I’m working on.

When I’m not making pictures, some of the things I enjoy are our two Potcake pups, Minnesota Twins baseball, cold coffee, gin and Richmond, VA.

I live conveniently close to Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and am happy to travel. I’ve got friends, family and photographic resources in southeast Florida and the Twin Cities and, with a little notice, I can be local in either of those places.

Please reach out if you’d like to discuss a project. I appreciate you taking the time to look through some of my work.
