I’ve lived a rather sordid life. At one point I ran a small, but fruitful, PEZ empire and not long after that I found myself standing behind the parts counter of a Harley-Davidson dealership slinging oil filters and flywheels. Eventually I found my way out from behind the counter and into the White House Photo Office as an intern assisting the Presidential photographers and hanging pictures in the West Wing. Today I work in a variety of roles ranging from Photojournalist to corporate photographer with the occasional wedding thrown into the mix.
I’m a Washington, D.C. native and a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art & Design. My photographs have been published all over the world in publications such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Newsweek, Time Magazine, Fortune Magazine, Rolling Stone and People Magazine. I cover a wide range of subjects from The White House and Capitol Hill to offbeat Americana. When I’m not chasing politicians and cruising through town in a motorcade, I can be found wondering around working on variety of personal projects.
I have also worked extensively as a corporate and event photographer for a variety of clients including The World Bank Group, The Atlantic Magazine, The National Journal Group, Real Clear Politics, The New Republic and many more.
