I specialize in commercial, lifestyle and landscape photography. I am deeply active in the photography community and believe in giving back through photography. I am always happy to do pro-bono work for causes I believe in.

My Red Umbrella photo, Boy in a Cornfield photo,  and Lady Bug video are featured in the Apple Shot on iPhone 6 ad campaign. The Red Umbrella photo won a Gold Cannes Lion award at this year's Cannes Lions. Clients include Apple, Microsoft, Google, Nest, Coca Cola, Insight Guide, Baby Center and other large brands.
