“I have been an artist my whole life.  

This is not a hobby, a whim, a means of self discovery a second career or just something I do for fun. I create images because this is what I was born to do. It is that simple and that complex. I started when I was three. My mom has shown me some of the pictures that I was creating back then. I believe her. My artistic journey has gone from drawing at an early age through a BFA degree in art, 2,000 photo shoots commercially for national brands and a lifetime of learning under the best in the business.”
