I am a Detroit, MI based photographer with deep creative roots and a vision for the future. As a natural artist, photography became an easily integrated component of my graphic arts background allowing me to express myself creatively by producing a final product that goes beyond expectations. Photography to me is the finest way to capture and create memories for life. Although I have been a photographer since 2001, I recently decided to share my art and creativity professionally with those seeking a photographer who is forward thinking.
An award winning photographer, who's work has been described as energetic, imaginative, and colorful.
As seen in the New York Times Street Fashion section.
Ten years of graphic & web design experience for small business owners and individuals.
Passionate about arts, entertainment, social justice, & self expression.
In the realm of photography, I employ a broad set of skills to produce quality work for all clients large and small. I would never blow my own horn, so I will let my diverse portfolio of work do the talking. (Yes, I'm modest!)

When I started toying with the idea of photography as more than a hobby, I told myself that I never wanted to work with people because they talk, are needed, and sometimes unpredictable. Flowers were just so much easier to work with.As my skills developed and creative interest developed, I found that I actually enjoyed photographing people and this grew into a deep passion. From studio sessions, family portraits, concerts, head shots to street photography, I found a way to embrace and master an area in photography that I never imagined. Read More
