I grew up in a pocket of orange county known as Garden Grove, but my mother referred to it as “West Garden Grove.” Spending my teen years navigating the educational waters of community college, I found an interest and passion in photography. After the requisite pre-adult years spent finding myself, I landed at Brook's Institute of Photography where I sought to make my new found passion a reality. Since graduating in 2006, I've worked as a staff photographer for Fred Segal, and helped launch the startup company Hautelook Inc. as lead photographer. In the summer of 2012 I relocated to sunny Seattle (yes I said sunny, I'm staying optimistic) for a position with Nordstrom as a Senior Photographer. Now I live with my dog Jack near the iconic Space Needle. Life is good.
