Freelance photographer working on part editorial/commercial work and part personal projects.

I love to take an idea from inception to finished product working with the tools I have.

I have 15 years of photography and video experience in both the studio and on location for clients all over the country. I also have 9 years experience as a user experience designer and web developer working at 2 major advertising agencies with clients from all over the world.

Currently a photographer and UX/web developer for a print and digital agency in Kansas City, I direct and produce images and videos for websites, client headshots, social media marketing and more. I storyboard, prepare, light, compose and edit images and videos every day for a range of items, from client products, food, architecture, short informative videos and other on-location shots. In addition, I also gather client needs and wants for their website and translate that into wireframes that give the best user experience with as little friction as possible. Once approved by the client, I then build the website in collaboration with the design team.

I love to create images and video that capture attention and tell stories. I play a key role in the visual storytelling and branding of leading consumer product companies and contribute to successful marketing campaigns.

Previously, I traveled throughout the U.S. to capture nature, lifestyle and landscape photography for a personal project I set out on to photograph the U.S. National Parks and the areas that surround them.

I have comprehensive knowledge of Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, Illustrator, Lightroom, Bridge and Capture One Pro; studio and lighting setups; and photography equipment including Nikon and Sony cameras (I currently shoot with a Nikon D750 and Sony A9).

I would love to discuss how I could help your brand. Please review my portfolio at and call me at (305) 923-3871 to discuss this further.

Thank you,
