I was born in 1983, in the year of the pig. They say that taking photographs of people is an acquisitive act, gaining something without giving back unless by conscious decision to do so in a separate act. Maybe it’s the pig in me that is gluttonous in this way: there’s a compulsion that drives me, one that I do not yet fully understand. Some people collect clothes, others collect stamps, and I take photographs, mostly of people and animals. I have been doing so for almost my entire life. The artifacts of my compulsion are here for you to see.
Though born in Sydney, Australia, I now split my time between New York and Chicago.
I have been published in People, Forbes, Food & Wine, Esquire, Nue, and SilvergrainClassics, among other places. Download my artist CV here. Selected exhibitions and contests follow:
