Born and raised in Northern California, and based in Los Angeles since 1998 working in the entertainment industry.  Photography has always been a passion of mine, whether viewing others work or as my secret pastime teaching myself how to use the camera. I love pop culture, icons, music ( can't live without my music) and I am lucky to do what I love.

I have worn many hats in my adult life: hairstylist, makeup artist, agency assistant, producer assistant, photo retoucher, web designer and celebrity publicist ( my last  job ) before deciding to pursue my "art" full-time. I have never been good at having a "boss" unless it was someone I truly respected. It was a privilege and honor to work with the king of  PR, Warren Cowan, and then on my own before deciding to go head first into photography full-time  over 10 years ago.

I am self taught, and find inspiration from the classic images of movie stars and the black and white movies from the Golden Age of Hollywood.
