Born in Richmond, Virginia, I have had an interest in film and photography my entire life. I received my Bachelor of Arts in film from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. My photographic eye has always been focused on naturalism, documentation, and fine art. This interest in imaging has lead me to work on film sets for the likes of "HBO" and "Disney"; shooting events, documentation, landscape, and nature photography for companies such as "Norwegian Cruise Lines", and "The Virginia Film Commission"; and also writing and shooting photojournalism pieces for "Daegu Pockets" and "The Korea Herald". I have also received accolades for my written essays on film criticism, my poetry and for my participating strips for the "Tiger and Bear" comic strip featured online and in print in "Daegu Pockets," "The Korea Herald," "Expacked," "Seoul Style," and "The One Four."
