I have over twenty years of professional experience working in photography, art, design, and video and have worked at every level from production artist and director of photography to video editor and creative director of a marketing agency. I love to teach and share my techniques and one day desire to use my experiences to develop the skills of future budding artists.

A mentor told me at a young age to never let myself be put into a category. That advice has stuck with me ever since and I practiced it until I didn’t need to. Using this valuable advice I’ve been able to work with clients in almost any field, all around the globe. I am thankful every day for being able to do what I love for a living. Art is my passion and I love helping people create anything they can imagine.

My clients include, but are not limited to: Apple, GoPro, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Chevron, Mobile, KFC, McDonald’s, Safeway Retail and Fuel, APB Clothing, SMP, Burton Snowboards, Ozzy Osbourne, KRSOne, Met Life, Watkins, Atticus Clothing, AmyK International, Ikonic Tonic, Pala Casino, Business OnLine, Davis Elen Agency, Ark Marketing, Fixtures Living, Honeywell, LSF Interactive, and Incubate
