Photographer, Artist, Storyteller & Entrepreneur
I was born in Chicago and graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. I moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn in 1999 with a duffle bag of clothes and my Nikon 35mm slung over my shoulder. Over the years I met so many amazing people and traveled all over the world to take photographs professionally.
We opened Twenty Sided Store in April 2011. My storytelling developed into writing and producing interactive immersive experiences. I have written and published nine adventures for roleplaying games and I am currently working on a science fantasy world called Mira.
I have worked on countless commercial and editorial photography projects in the fashion, food, and music industry.
Photographers and Directors I have had the honor of working with include Howard Schatz, Bruce Wolf, Olugbenro Ogunsemore, Chris Strong, Frank Ishman, Ray Adams, Geoff Green, Dan Forbes, Jeffrey Dionesotes, and Linda Robbennolt.
Clients and Creatives that I have worked with and who continue to inspire me include Frankie Rose, Tara Stiles, TV on the Radio, Sunny A. Atema, Pansy Division, Ivéta Gourmet, Todd James, David Henry Brown Jr., Stefanie Syat, Dana Schechter, Caroline Yes, Ingrid Ammann, Stefan Pokorny, Brian Brown, DJ PreSkool.
