Light and Logic are two of my favorite things.

I am a Art Director and Photographer originally from the Philadelphia area, where I tried my hand at both agency and studio life. I learned a lot about how to work professionally from my time at 160over90. Then I learned more about what I really can excel at by meeting non-profit organizations and artists as clients at GDLOFT.

In 2009, I moved to Kagoshima, Japan, where I pursued another passion of mine, Education, while also improving my skills with a camera documenting the volcano in my backyard.

Having now lived and worked in Japan for over 10 years, I have developed a deeper understanding of the culture, language, and challenges required to communicate both locally and globally.

Based in Tokyo since 2013, I am still adjusting to big-city life. When not at work or juggling two energetic kids, you’ll find me starting into the cosmos, trying to get an obscure retro game to boot, or out crusing the streets at odd hours on my skates.
