LA based, born and raised in New Jersey. I moved to California at age 16, graduating from Monrovia High School. I attended San Diego State University for Criminal Justice Administration, earning my B.S. After graduation I moved back to the Los Angeles area to concentrate on my band, which was touring and recording. During my time in bands I developed an absolute fascination with photography, an interest that, when coupled with my obsession for foreign cinema, led me to discover cinematography was my passion.
