I am a professional Civil Engineer who dared to dream that the pursuit of an interest in Photography could lead to a body of work of significance in the media industry. I bought my first camera at age 29 while working on an engineering project in the city of Houston and this gave birth to an obsession with photography that still gets stronger by the day. 18 months into my photographic journey, I relocated with my wife Lisa to manage a construction project in Los Angeles and this is where I was able to work with several celebrities to capture an historic slice of the urban american movie and music scene. I will be eternally grateful for the opportunities and the relationships that I was able to be a part of and the body of work that resulted.
Following an intense 8 years in Los Angeles, I took a step back to focus on the curation of my image archives and more importantly, the creation of intensely personal work away from the commercial forces and demands that defined much of my work to that point . The past and present images are now available for viewing and purchase though fineartamerica.com.
'Both my 'Left' and 'Right' Brains demand my attention so I find myself actively engaged in creative and scientific projects simultaneously. I believe that my images often reflect the reality of this balance that I often struggle to maintain in a society where a singular choice is the norm.
