I come from a background of many things.
The overarching themes of my endeavors both professionally and personally revolve around that of art, design, and music. As a student at The Ohio State University, I studied Industrial Design. It was there where I refined my growing love and skill for aesthetics, function, and form. Always accompanying my design work was the camera. I studied photography in school with a passion, not a profession in mind. Coming out of school, I landed my first job as a packaging designer in Columbus, Ohio. I spent four years there and found myself wanting more; something different. I packed a truck and headed West–it was Colorado’s landscape I was after.
I found my professional home as a graphic designer for a major architecture firm in Downtown Denver. As I left the world of product design and entered that of print, I could not help but think I was leaving my 3-dimensional design experience behind–boy was I wrong. Not only did the firm push me in new directions for print and digital media, but it also helped me to craft a great appreciation and understanding for the built environment.
While photography has always been a passion of mine, more recent exposure to architecture and the development of a more critical eye for the built environment has slowly transformed my passion into a profession. Continually pushing myself creatively coupled with possessing a unique eye for life, lighting and composition lend itself quite nicely to capturing a 3-dimensional space and its story in a 2-dimensional image.
