Photography began for me looking at prints of the volcanic coastlines in Hawaii. The dark moody black of the rocks and the ocean blues contrasted by the crashing whites of the surf inspired me and led toward my fondness for black and whites today.
I enjoyed photography from that beginning and have rarely set the camera down since. While attending the University of South Carolina, believing I'd go on to study law, I found myself interning for the Attorney General and realised the life behind law books was not for me. I needed to create something beautiful and specifically visual. So I began travelling to Manhattan and photographing for friends in antiques and art galleries. Then to Austin, Texas photographing weird and beautiful that Austin is known for.
In 2009 I moved to Los Angeles to expand my capabilities in film school. Many small films, side jobs, music videos, and extra roles later, I found myself in London and spent the next eight years there working across Europe in fashion and photography.
After spending four and half years at the creative helm of Shop Pyramid, I moved from Creative Direction to consulting and spent the next two years in Doha, Qatar, working alongside top GCC luxury brands.
Today I am back in the United States, not far from my hometown in Atlanta, Georgia. I am working as a photographer on commercial fashion, magazine commissions, and personal projects.
