As a graduation present from High School I was given my first camera by my parents and have seen the world through a lens ever since. I enjoy landscape, travel, and automotive photography but have always been interested in shooting a wide variety of subjects.
Over the years I have worked at a variety of different photo labs. The most influential was A&I Color in Hollywood, one of the top fine-art and commercial photo labs in the world at the time. At A&I, I was a Technical Supervisor in charge of calibrating a variety of scanning and printing equipment. I also worked in the digital printing department making fine art and commercial prints for a variety of clients. Working at such a high end lab with talented people (both coworkers and clients) really refined my understanding of color and composition. I was also exposed to and learned about a wide variety of different photographic techniques and equipment.
My day job is a computer Visual Effects Artist working in the Film and TV industries. It is essentially like a photoshop artist, but for moving images. I have worked on everything from big blockbuster movies to the smallest things you’ve never heard of. You can see my list of credits here.
I am a graduate of Otis College of Art and Design with a BA in Digital Media. My time in art school gave me a solid foundation to build from, as well as a much broader context from with to view art and imagery.
