I am a freelance photographer and videographer based out of Spokane, Washington. After earning a BA in Economics from UCLA in 1994, I combined my creative abilities with my economics and business education as a part of the creative industry in both California and Washington. My early experience includes 11 years as a pre-press operator and print production manager, and 3 years as an art director.

Since 2007, I have worked as a still photographer adding video services in early 2009. My range of services include still photography, filming, production and motion graphics for a host of corporate, agency and editorial clients, including the Pacific Northwest Inlander, for whom I won a national first place in 2010, 2013 and 2015 from the Association of Alternative Weeklies in the Photography category and a 2010 first place award in the Alternative Newsweekly Photography category by the Society of Professional Journalists Region 10. I also string for the Associated Press, regularly covering NCAA Division I football and basketball.

I carefully listen to the needs of his clients and makes all of the proper creative decisions to get a client’s message out in an effective manner. Whether it is a TV commercial, a web promotional video, a print advertisement or a news story, I always listen for key moments in an interview and look for action taking place around a location to find elements to enhance the story being told.
