I’m an LA native with roots in the valley. I work as a photographer and am a dad to two little girls. I love what I do and the community of people I get to work with.
Sunday mornings are everyone’s favorite moment of the week. What do you spend your time doing?
My Sundays are usually spent with my girls. Being a working photographer is way more than a 9-5, so when I do have time to disconnect and be home, I try and make the most of it.
What are you most grateful for?
This will sound trite, but everything good I have in my life is because of my work. I met my wife through photography, and we have a house and our great kids; in addition the majority of my solid friendships are people I love working and collaborating with. I am very grateful.
Everyone has a Eureka moment. When do you feel the most inspired?
I find myself being inspired in so many different ways. I love learning about and from people other than myself and learning about how big our world is. Experiencing a new perspective can be very inspirational. A new way to tell an old story or a new spin on a genre or theme. That fires me up.
What was your most profound learning experience?
Travel has absolutely changed me and shaped me. I have had the extreme fortune to experience much of our world and learned my love of photography through those experiences.
What is your biggest pet peeve? It can be anything, and it’s no holds-barred.
I try and be an easygoing guy. But people who are just flat-out inconsiderate of others’ feelings bother me.
What are the three things you can’t live without?
Three things I cannot live without are my family, being able to create, and a really good laugh.
What are your most guilty pleasures?
Chunky Monkey ice cream, The Office (BBC and US versions), and geeking out with friends.
What’s your hidden and weird talent that no-one, not even your partner knows about?
Well, if my wife doesn’t know, why should I tell you? LOL
What is a trend that you wish to obliterate forever?
I’ve never been a fan of neon animal prints.
