In sixth grade, I got my first camera while on vacation in Hong Kong, a Pentax ME.
My first published photos were in my seventh grade yearbook.
I never thought of photography as a career until I went to visit my parents in Milan while enrolled at Johnson & Wales. Where I was pursuing a degree in hotel management so that I could surf as much as possible.
After a few years of assisting some great and not so great photographers, I went out on my own. While shooting for various designers and publications, I also worked as a technical producer through many seasons of NY Fashion week. Gaining insight to a whole other facet of the fashion world that has influenced me and been incorporated into my work.
I still surf and live in New York City with my partner Lulu Chen and our dog Ryder.
