Duration: Two years.Staff: Me...and a bunch of awesome crew/friends.Education: Art Center College of Design.Cultural Influences: I think stories influence me, stories about connection (or the search for it). I love podcasts like the Moth, and the writing of people like Miranda July. Also growing up in Chicago influenced me, and running around the Illinois countryside...Environment: The gratuitous beauty of California. I shoot on location, and work out of a lovely light-filled studio on computer-stuff days.Philosophy: Surround yourself with good folks and you will have a good life...professionally and otherwise. I'm grateful to be a photographer, and I'm a photographer thanks to the people who've been kind enough to help me or take an interest in my work.
