I live and work in the Chicagoland area. I became interested in photography when I was 12. My first camera was a Kodak Brownie Super 27. I developed an interest in pursuing photography and began taking pictures for my school yearbook.
After graduating from College, I studied photography at Stuart-Rodgers Studio in Evanston, Illinois and began working for George Poulos and Associates, Photographers in Skokie, Illinois. During the years after my graduation from college I worked as a freelance photographer for Einzig Photography of New York City and Lerner Newspapers of Chicago.
My work is most influenced by the photographer Jerry Burchard. Take a look at his work and you will see a photographer that was untroubled by the 'nuts and bolts' of his profession; he 'saw and recorded', then left the rest up to the viewer.
I also admire the work of Minor White, Edward Weston and Art Kane.
I look for details, order and symmetry that may be overshadowed by the greater scope of the scene. I look for what may be easily overlooked.
