A native of North Carolina, I’ve been a professional photographer for over 17 years. Originally from Charlotte, I graduated from Wake Forest University with an undergraduate degree in business. During my time at Wake I cultivated my passion for photography through assistantships with established photographers. I also worked on the Old Gold & Black newspaper staff, and enrolled in every art and photographic elective I could squeeze into my schedule. After graduating, I moved to upstate New York where I studied commercial photography at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT). I graduated with honors in November of 2000 with a BFA in advertising photography. Shortly thereafter, I accepted a position to work as a photographer and imaging specialist in Winston-Salem, NC.
