My background is all about making pictures: drawings, paintings, and photographs.
I like to shoot athletes in part because I wasn't allowed to participate in sports as a kid, but also because the culture of sports is rich in drama, excitement, inspiration, and even humor.
My background as a former art director (with a doctorate!) provides me with experience researching, designing, prototyping, producing, executing, and post-production on shoots. Time spent behind the camera is fun but it is all the other tasks that make a shoot shine with clarity of purpose.
