I'm a photographer based in my hometown of Los Angeles. My background as a journalist shapes how I approach photography – whether I'm street shooting, creating a portrait, or photographing sports, my goal is to tell a compelling story and show the viewer something amazing and fascinating in everyday life.

After graduating from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, I lived in New York City and covered a range of subjects for newspapers and magazines such as Sports Illustrated, ESPN The Magazine, The Bergen Record, GQ, Self, and Seventeen. I reported on breaking news, wrote features and profiles, and interviewed professional, college, and Olympic athletes. Although I loved working as a reporter and writer, I was always a little jealous of the photographers.

I now have the wonderful opportunity to photograph a lot of sports, primarily the extraordinarily talented athletes at the University of Southern California; my favorite sports to shoot are basketball, track and field, tennis, swimming, diving, and beach volleyball. I'm also involved at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, where I get to learn from and work alongside remarkable instructors and fellow photographers. My other accomplishments include:
