Originally from the High Desert of Southern California, I now live and works as a photographer and printmaker in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Instead of pursuing a traditional academic education in photography, I relocated to Bucks County, Pennsylvania in 2002 for an intensive apprenticeship with the photographers Michael A. Smith and Paula Chamlee. I worked closely with them in the field and darkroom, absorbing as much as possible, while independently studying the historic and theoretical aspects of the medium. My photographs have been included in national and international group exhibitions and are in a number of public and private collections.
