A Little Bit About Me

I was born and raised in Concord, CA and I have called Oakland home for nearly 8 years. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, back in 2010. A few months after graduating, I became a photo assistant at the Clorox Company. Within a year, I became one of the in-house photographers there. With the occasional hand modeling here and there. And after being at Clorox for close to 7 years, I left to pursue freelancing.

I still love shooting with film when I can. 35mm, 120mm, alternative processes. Eventually I'd like to give 4x5 a try.
