I'm a freelance portrait photographer based in San Francisco living minutes away in South San Francisco. I'm the Creative Director of 8:45a, a photo and cinematography production company serving startups and companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and co-founder of Motionscope Weddings. And of course I run Photostrip, a pop-up photobooth serving the Bay Area.

I'm a proud Wildcat of St. Ignatius College Preparatory ('05) and Don of University of San Francisco ('10).

When not photographing, you can find me: learning through my endless list of magazine subscriptions, browsing the internet for notable photography work, drinking French pressed coffee, or reading business books on my Kindle.
"When one person photographs another, they share a bond that has been long lost in human interaction. Whether the culprit of the snap is a lover or stranger, for a brief instance your focus is on each other -- at times you gaze into other's eyes for seconds, even minutes on end. And although a camera may serve to masquerade what would otherwise be naked concentration on the other, what perhaps compensates for this is the final result, a permanent imprint of the moment. Taking 'JJ,' I simply flipped one on its head to face each other. Instant Reflection."
