– Client Concierge –
I was immersed in photography while in high school after my dad gave me a camera from a local thift store. This simple gift sparked a passion that would lead to a life of photography.
I attended Ohio University, where I studied commercial photography, specializing in food photography. After graduating from Ohio University, I moved to Chicago to explore the big city and set up a professional photography studio. Inspired by the excitement and discovery of working in a five-star kitchen for numerous years, I primarily focused on food photography – a field that combined my two passions. In addition to working as a chef, my fine art background lent a thoughtful, artistic element to my work, providing clients with a powerful concept along with an appealing image. While food photography was literally my bread and butter, I have worked in portrait, fine art, and still life images for many years.
In 2010, I moved back home to Cleveland to settle down, and continue to pursue my love of photography. I now live in Chagrin Falls, with my Fiancé Matt, golden retriever Samantha, and calico cat Kaedella. I love all thing food, photography, and fun!
