I have been visually curious all of my life– it has always been a distinct facet of who I am as a person, and as an artist.
My birthplace and home for almost twenty years, Las Vegas, the infamous city known for its flashy nature, significantly impacted the way I look at what is around me.
It was not the over-the-top extravagance that captured my attention, but it was the lowered horizon lines and geometric backdrop of the cityscape that I was drawn to. Those visual patterns were formational in the development of my method of seeing and searching for content to photograph. It seems as though I can't get away from balancing my subjects against architectural lines as I compose an image, or at least acknowledging when those lines appear.
While Las Vegas is a place that draws others from every corner of the world, it is also a stagnant and dull city with little to offer those who are thirsting for cultural immersion. I identified a hunger for expansion and diverse experiences that evolved in my early teens. But it wasn't until I graduated from college where I began to travel quite frequently, for extended amounts of time, to beautiful and intriguing locations around the world–Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. My desire for traveling remains insatiable.
I aim to document various styles of people, and record distinct moments of life occurring around me through my photography. I reach a creative milestone when I'm capturing the perfect synergy between environment, model and product.
As I continue to build my archive, I am currently looking for assignments that pertain to fashion editorials, that are travel oriented and brand image specific.
