I’m a food photographer based in Los Angeles, California.

I studied Linguistics and Astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz. After graduating, I worked in the restaurant industry for three years from waiting tables to line cook to managing a team to coffee nerd.

I balanced my day job with personal creative work in portrait photography, which garnered attention from a wedding photography studio in southern California. I learned many skills rather quickly as a photographer and this allowed me to work on projects that derived from a love of being in the kitchen around food.

My aesthetic is clean and moody, often with a minimalistic approach . I typically do several iterations on each image and usually end up refining the one I find most impactful. Every step in the creative process is unique to each project and at the end of the day it’s about creating memorable images.
