NYC based photographer working in the music industry. My work has been seen in coutless magazines, music albums, DVD covers and product ads. I’ve been blessed to find a niche market which allows me to just be myself and having musicians find me because of the work I produce.

Age you took your first photo? What camera did you use? To the point of what sparked major interest, early 20s.
When did you realize that you wanted to be a professional photographer? I’m really critical on my own work and feel weird calling myself a “professional”. Probably within the past 5 years when people started hiring me and buying prints I realized this was something that was more than a hobby.
Who inspires you? Bob Gruen, Mick Rock, Jerry Schatzberg, Pennie Smith, Danny Clinch
What camera do you use to capture most of your work? I shoot Nikon and Leica

What do you do when not taking photos? Hanging out with my wife and pug.
