I'd like to consider myself well versed in a number of things, especially when one takes a look at my educational experience. I started and completed a degree in hospitality business, but upon moving to Chicago I wanted to discover and develop my creative side and found myself studying film at DePaul University.

Although I am pursuing a Master's in Digital Cinema at DePaul University, I have discovered a great interest in portrait photography. I feel that it's important to have as much knowledge in the visual arts with stills as well as moving picture. With that being said:

- Most of my work up until this point is from location photography, scouting locations throughout the city can be very challenging but is fun. 

- Since all of my background stems from location photography, one of my main goals is to gain experience in studio photography. 

- I have some experience in promotional photography for local musicians, such as Carlo Navarro and Becky Johnson.

- Although I have some experience in using photoshop, I strive to get all of my photos right the first time around, rather than touching it up in post.

I guess I could say more, but I figure if my interest lies in the visual arts then why should the main focus be in my text? I invite you to take a look at some of my work, and if you like what you see then I would be happy to hear from you.


To gain an internship in the field of portrait photography that will challenge me and where my abilities will be utilized to the fullest extent.
