Photographer, baker, animal mom & chocolate lover.
My visual career began by studying fashion and commercial photography at college. Instead of continuing in that direction, I jumped in to the film and television industry where I worked for 20 years in various roles. I was lucky enough to work as a digital artist restoring films from the original reels to Blu-ray. I learned a lot about image touch-up and colorization. Some of my work included the theatrical releases of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Avatar and Transformers: Dark of the Moon, as well as, the Blu-Ray and theatrical re-releases of Disney’s Snow White, Pinnochio, Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, Fantasia 2000 and Cinderella. Other Blu-Ray projects included Star Wars: Episode 1, Aliens, Rashomon, The Robe, Terminator and True Lies.
In the last decade, I’ve worked as a motorsports photographer and action sports videographer. My clients have included TK Sport Horses, Skullcandy Team Nissan, Shadow Works Group, Shadow Works Air Assault Team (SWAAT), Best IT Racing, Andy Lee Racing, Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving, Crown Seven E-Cigarettes, AEM Performance Electronics, Autosport Image (Porsche, Ferrari, Flying Lizard Motorsports, K-PAX Racing), North American Race Car, Reiter Engineering, Blackdog Speed Shop, Andy Pilgrim Racing, PayRacer, U.S. Navy SEALS, Aspen Winter X Games and more.
Three years ago, I started playing around with food photography. I’ve always been drawn to the beauty of food online and in magazines. Along the way, I partnered with friend and publisher, Nancy Suttles, to create a series of printed and digital publications including Nourish & Flourish. Our publications are now in Barnes and Noble, Sam’s Club, Whole Foods, plus other natural food markets across the U.S., and available digitally via PressReader, Magzter and ISSUU to over 300+ million readers worldwide.

How did you learn to photograph food?
During my career, I’ve photographed musicians, actors, fashion, landscapes and motorsports. I’ve always been attracted to photos of beautiful food. So, I started playing around with light and photographing my homemade baked goods. The rest I learned online via other photographers and YouTube.
