Have you ever yearned for something so much that it burned your chest with desire? A thrust of palpitating heartbeats accompanied by a craving cadence without the ability to syncopate. I had this ache a few times in my life. For a Nintendo. For the Micheal Jordan shoes.
I hoped these emotions would dissipate the older I got, but I realized that while I may get over not having a pair of cool shoes, aches in my chest would come from other things. Elements in life I dreamed of having, but just couldn’t seem to grasp. That is, until I found something I couldn’t stop dreaming of: Photography.
My “eye” for photography began at an early age. I always viewed life creatively, paying close attention to color and definition. In my world, everyone could look like a superstar because I looked for qualities that made them great
The starting point of my career in photography originated as a Music Manager for various artists. Finding photographers for headshots, promotional and conceptual photography always seemed difficult. So, I assumed the role of capturing the essence of music artists by searching for their best qualities. I found the characteristics that they never thought they had and “SNAP”! My photography career was born.
I have an eclectic palette of interest ranging from fashion to graphic design and from music to architecture, all finding its way to my love of photography. To pick up a camera is to bring the visions in my head to life. My camera is the road that leads to branding.
Outside of photography, I am a pianist and can play three other instruments; saxophone, drums and organ. While I have a background in graphic design, I am a connoisseur of delectable confections. Red Velvet and Carmel cupcakes are my favorites. When I’m not working in my photography studio of sorts, I jet to my insane obsession of Starbucks with my Mac computer for a session of creative thoughts and coffee.
