About the Artist

I first picked up a camera and a Super 8 movie camera in high school, then studied photography at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) and Photography and Holography (remember that?) at The Art Institute of Chicago. I apprenticed with, and assisted, several prominent photographers in Chicago prior to striking out on my own.

As a commercial photographer in Chicago, I specialize in food and product photography for advertising, packaging, and marketing.  I created a light-filled, music-filled, laid-back studio to work in every day. My clients included Pepsi, Kellogg’s, ConAgra, Radio Flyer, Frontera, Corona, Butterball, Unilever and more. I also shot PLATE, a professional food magazine for chefs. We had so much fun doing this with our great food stylists and clients, we dubbed it “our grown-up play group.”
