I grew up in south Florida. My mother was an artist and photographer, my father was a schoolteacher. I got into art at a young age, it was always a part of my household.
I was introduced to the work of my photo heroes Diane Arbus, Robert Frank, and Helmut Newton in art school at UF. I moved to Manhattan, assisting and building up my book working for indie magazines. I uprooted to L.A. and became an early adopter of digital photo technology. The style I came up with led to music label work. Those album cover jobs brought editorial and advertising clients of all stripes. I also have an architectural photography practice: Marker 4 Photos.
I write too. I've written non-fiction for Photo District News, Creem, The Village Voice, Traveler, Curbed, Glue, PureWow, and L.A. Weekly. My current fiction project is sci-fi audio-drama podcast To The Manor Borne By Robots.
These days, I've come back to Florida. I am happiest living close to the ocean. I love production and making art. I’m always looking forward to the next project, and I am never bored.
