|Hello and thank you for visiting my site...|
I went to the University of North Texas (UNT) and recieved my BFA in fine arts/photography, minoring in Radio Television & Film (1995). Following that was a move to California to go to Brooks Institue of Photography (Santa Barbara). I have since remained in the West and have been blessed to shoot for numerous on-going personal, editorial and commercial clients.
Art, nature, design, architecture, high-fashion, movies, music, science, science fiction, the paranormal, the surreal...even old cartoons...name just a few of the things that inspire my many personal projects which can be seen throughout my site; and in many ways help me to generate concepts or points of view for clients as well. All I can say is that I am grateful to be creative [as a photograper, director, producer, what have you]...on a professional level.
"I believe that creativity is one of humanity's highest gifts and it is the mechanism by which we can achieve greatness in any arena and in any situation should we choose to see it."
So on that note, please check back again with this site/my work as it evolves.
