Raised in Los Alamos, New Mexico – an island of science and technology in a state otherwise known for its art and culture, I discovered an interest in photography during my senior year of high school. Upon graduation I studied computer science at University of California, Santa Barbara; however, I soon realized that my passion was photography, and I transferred to the renowned Brooks Institute of Photography. While at Brooks, I found myself gravitating to the intersection of the technology and artistic world.
In 2003, I graduated with honors from Brooks and received the Industrial/Scientific department award. In 2005, I received a Master of Science in Photography degree with my thesis, “Applications of Reflected Ultraviolet Photography Beyond the Glass Transition Region.”
For the last 20 years, I have worked as a creative professional in the aerospace and medical device industries creating photography, video, and digital graphics content for a variety of specialty areas. I currently live in the Orange County with my two children. My family and I travel each year on photography trips and I spend many weekends shooting around Southern California. My photographic goal remains to create images that merge my technical and artistic abilities.
