Bio

I picked up my first digital SLR in 2005 as a hobby.  I've always been interested in photography as a way to document travel and life events, but I quickly became more interested in creating art that I love.  

Little did I know that this simple purchase would end up changing the way I see and interact with the world around me.

I’m not a Chicago native but I’ve lived in the city since 2000. In that time, I’ve walked many of the streets finding hidden gems throughout the dozens of neighborhoods that make up the city. I pride myself on seeing Chicago through the eyes of an observer. Quite possibly with my headphones on but always looking for the things I’ve never seen before.

My photographic style attempts to show beautiful places in unique and fun ways.  I'm inspired by strong subjects and I enjoy creating beautiful images that invoke emotion and intrigue with the viewer.  Most importantly, I create images that I'm proud to hang on my wall and look at every day.
