I create art that expresses power and beauty, in order to inspire power, beauty, and thus personal liberation in the lives of each member of my audience. This is the core purpose for my photography, comedy, writing, and even my fashion sense.
Photography and writing may have been an inevitable destination for me. I grew up with a father who was severely speech disabled. Though a highly intelligent man, a motorcycle accident left him with a paralyzed tongue that made it nearly impossible for him to speak clearly. Because I lived with him, I could usually understand what he meant and interpret between him and other people. That being said, conversations were limited to basic, easy to enunciate words and ideas.
A childhood like this wires your brain a certain way. I arrived in the world with a penchant for big ideas and the tools to communicate them with. Thus, my deep love for pictures and words. I was always that kid packing a crappy 110 film camera around. Though the camera came first, I really found my artistic voice as a musician growing up. I’ve played the trumpet and bass guitar in a variety of groups, from the Utah State University Jazz Ensemble to the SLC punk rock band, The Toros, and dozens of orchestras, combos, and rock bands in between. There are few things on this planet that make me happier than freezing time with a musician mid-song.
My studio is based in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. We are fully equipped to handle everything from simple portraits to a full scale commercial prodution. I’m available for assignments nationwide., and look forward to creating your next photo shoot.
