About Me


I am a San Francisco-based photographer travel, landscape, architecture and Burning Man photographer. I take photographs because I like to document my explorations of the world, because photography forces me to concentrate, focus, and live in the moment, and because I hope every once in a while to create something of lasting beauty.

I have won or been a finalist in numerous international photography competitions, including a winner in the PDN World in Focus 2017 and the PDN Great Outdooors 2017 contests, a top twenty finalist for two entries in the 2017 International Architectural Photography Awards, and Runner Up in the 2017 Travel Photographer of The Year contest, amateur division. My photos have been exhibited around the world, including in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco,Miami, Berlin, London, and Mumbai.

I took up photography when I quit my job as a systems engineer to travel around the world for eighteen months. During my travels, I was surprised to find that many of my most intense memories and experiences were when I was behind the lens. When I returned to the US, I began studying photography more formally, mostly by reading, by attending field workshops, and by having my images critiqued by experienced professionals. I have been lucky enough over the years to attend workshops with some great photographers, including David Muench, Jack Dykinga, Justin Black, Michael Frye, and Lewis Kemper. More recently, I've benefited from the online post processing tutorials of Trey Ratcliff and Jimmy McIntyre, and I've admired the Burning Man photography of Scott London.
