____________________________________________

Specialty: 

Translating the nonverbal tinyness of an individual's human condition into a pictorial form that elicits, for both subject and photographer, connection and understanding.  That is, the portrait.

Excelling In:  

Candid captures and details at events.  You probably won't notice I'm there, but if there's life in the room imma find it. Like a navy seal with a camera.  The day-job part of life-behind-lens.

Secretly Capturing

- Bored women at society events next to alpha males and tech bros yammering on about some bullshit.  

- Slivers/chunks/lines/wisps of hard light

- People or things adjacent to neon signs

- Chemex coffee filters, used, unfolded

- Statements in grafitti

- Ambiguous signs

- The post-industrial landscape

Paid Work

- NY Times

- SF Chronicle

- Dom Perignon 

- San Francisco Symphony

- Stanford University

- Google

- Apple

- North Face

- Genentech

- Wells Fargo

- Likely Your Company, Publication, Or One Very Similar

Art Work: Drift-y blurry time-bend-y landscapes. Big ones. Seen nowhere yet. 

Social Media:  Hell no.  Hive minds and originality are not compatible.  Human relationships require flesh and blood people.  

Instagram is the most efficient way to become creatively generic.  Facebook turns friends/loved ones into in-groups/out-groups.  

My belief system is based on capacity and availability for human connection.  Social media corrupts that.

Zuckerberg you have a standing invite to my place for dinner and a chat about all this nonsense.  I'm ten houses up on the right. I hope I'm wrong.
