I'm a photographer because I was hit by a car. While recovering, my Dad gave me a camera. That was the most important gift I had ever received. It shifted my focus away from me and my problems, opened my eyes and changed my soul.

That camera set me on a new path. Along the way, I've met countless people who have enriched and deepened my life. I'm grateful for that. That's why I make photographs and teach - to somehow provide something back. And what I enjoy most about photography, is finding the light within others and connecting in an meaningful way.

If you feel who I am and what I do might a fit for a project you have in mind, let me know. I'm based in Santa Barbara, CA but am available world wide.


Portfolio Building in Flash

There is nothing more personally and professional rewarding than building a portfolio. The dang problem is that it is incredibly hard to take time off to crank out an effective, compelling and thoughtful portfolio.

This seminar will get you going. It will get the creative juices flowing, and give you a new perspective into site design/development.

WeÕll explore of the creative process of using Flash to build a portfolio website (as well as other similar style of websites). WeÕll approach site building from a visual, conceptual and practical approach with the goal of learning how to better build clean, quick, and fast-loading sites.
