I'm a freelance portrait photographer based in San Francisco living minutes away in South San Francisco. I'm also the cofounder of Motionscope Weddings, Creative Director of 8:45a, a photo and cinematography company serving startups and companies in the San Francisco Bay Area & 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.

I am privileged to have worked with companies including Google, Salesforce, Zynga, Oracle, Cisco, Goal Line Productions, and Kiva.

I am lucky to be the one chosen to translate the brands of companies like MoleCover, Fifth & Brannan, DoubleHelix Clothing, Urbio, and Silva LTD into images.

I am grateful to have developed relationships with those who I have photographed well beyond the session and am honored when I am trusted to create images that represent a brand, a community, or a personality.

"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."
