Shifting my professional landscape as a photographer. Focusing my efforts on human subjects in editorial portraiture, lifestyle, documentary and professional headshots. Shoot other editorial assignments too. Have significant skills and experience in the event photography world so if an event is going to be fun, I'll shoot it. In my spare time I love to read, travel, run, drink wine, and explore the ever-changing human condition with those who on a similar path of mindful growth and development.
quality over quantity; connecting with and interpersonal communications; shutter speed, aperture and iso; enthusiast publications & media relations; personal growth and mindful development. i can also spit-shine leather boots and shoes to a high gloss, but have yet to find a professional application for such skills.
delving into larger, commercial photoshoots; business management and life planning and organization; figuring out what to do with all this hair on my head.
learn to be gentle with yourself, approach all others with compassion, and don't overthink a task before commencing.
buddha, the dalai lama, mother theresa... and all others who have realized their own inner goodness, only to turn around and care and love for those around them who are still on that journey.
some say my hair... i think it's my ability to connect with people of all kinds and from all backgrounds.
never planned one. just do what i love.
my home phone number from when i was a kid growing up in glencoe, il.
meditation... it will last you a lifetime.

Crossovers give us permission to let go and get complete; to let a part of ourselves die so that this new part of us can be reborn, more expansive and complete than before.
When we are vulnerable, we actually get connected to what makes us feel most awake and alive. That's sort of the unexpected thing. It allows us to really connect to what matters most, like your values, where you feel like your gifts are being underutilized, and perhaps most importantly, it allows us to feel our fear, and experience it without getting hijacked by it.
We often try and avoid frustration, but frustration is often our biggest catalyst to creating change for us.
