Give us a brief description about your background as a photographer.
"My interest in photography came about as a teenager while living in my hometown of Chicago. While all the other kids were out playing sports and video games, I would spend most of my time perusing through my mother's closet and dressing up my friends to photograph them. This early love for photography prompted me to move to New York after high school to pursue my career full time. Since then I've been fortunate enough to work with some amazing clients that include V, VMAN, Madame Figaro, Elle, The Block, Bullett, Blackbook, Peter Pilotto, Yigal Azrouël , Richard Chai, and Tim Coppens."
Describe your self-portrait and how it conveys your perspective/style as an artist.
"It represents my minimalist and formalist sensibility in art and design. My work tends to focus mainly on composition and a harmonious balance between textures, colors, and light to simply create a beautiful image without all the unnecessary frills."
