How did you get into photography?
I got into photography through Instagram. I graduated college with a degree in finance and did the corporate thing for several years but as my Instagram following started growing and I started getting really positive feedback I decided to take the plunge.

Who are some of your fave people you’ve photographed?
Each of my subjects is unique in their own way, I love being able to portray the person’s personality through a still image. Some incredible people I had in front of my lens were JR, Daniel Arsham, Jared Leto, Kathy Ryan, Scott Lipps, Steven Kolb and countless others.
