To me the camera is key to learning about people and the stories they have to share. I noticed early on in my photography studies that when I had my camera in my hand people opened up to me. That openness is the inspiration that has driven my photography for the last 15 years.

 

I grew up in El Paso, Texas and upon graduating from UT Austin, in 1999, I moved to New York City.  Just after Sept 11, 2001, the New York City Fire Department hired me as a staff photographer.  For the next 2 years I used my camera to capture the moments and the stories of the firefighters of New York City.  Surrounded by the personnel and the families of the FDNY, I listened to the stories of lost life.

 

From the fire department I was hired by the City Hall Mayor’s photo unit.  After my experience at City Hall I went on to work in D.C. as a White House staff photographer.  This journey took my photography skills to the next level.  I refer to these years as my “photography boot camp".

 

After the White House I began a career in presidential campaigning.  I have shot for five different presidential candidates and worked on many other political campaigns. 

 

I now live in the best city on earth, New York City.  I freelance with surprise proposals and pick up all event photo jobs that are offered to me!
