I have always loved the arts. I have been taking pictures since I was 10 years old which is when I first learned photography and fell in love with it. Since then I have been working in the photo industry for almost 20 years. I have been trained by every major camera manufacturer so I can answer ANY question you might have on your particular camera and I even know the old stuff, you wont stump me. I used to have my own darkroom but now work almost exclusively in digital. I have also ventured into video as of late and that has been a lot of fun.

I have been the lead private tutor for the largest camera store in LA and have tutored a huge range of people from kids who just got their first camera to very high end professionals.

I went to school for painting and for many years, my focus was oil painting. I also to this day attend monthly live drawing sessions to keep my skills sharp. I have received media attention for my most recent project, which involves making a type of paint by hand called egg tempera.

I love helping people develop their creative voice, and I think it is very important for that voice to be properly trained so they are in no way limited. I think creative thinking helps in every aspect of our lives and the more artists we have in the world the prettier that world can be.
