After graduating from Art Center College of Design, I began my career as a fashion photographer in Milan. Later I had a successful advertising photography studio in Hollywood for many years, and worked with national advertising agencies on such accounts as American Express, Beringer Vineyards, Carnation, Disney, General Mills, Hilton Hotels, KCBS, KNBC, MCA/Universal, Mattel, Microsoft, McDonalds, Nissan, Prudential, Sheraton, Toshiba, Unocal, and a bunch of others. Happily I'm still shooting ads.
I started photographing weddings several years ago, and found that I not only liked doing them, but I was pretty good at it.
My wedding photography has been featured in American PHOTO Magazine, Professional Photographer Magazine, and Bridal Guide, and seen in Seattle Bride, Southern California Bride, Wedding Bells, Grace Ormonde's Wedding Style, Destination I Do, and Modern Bride.
I now make my home on Bainbridge Island, WA with my wife Carmela, Rosie, the German Shepherd Wonder Dog, and Chester & Eddie the Orange Tabby Kittens, aka 'The Boys,' I love to travel, and have done destination weddings in Hawaii, Atlanta, Lake George, Northern California, and Southern California.
In a more perfect world, I'd probably shoot everything on film using a rangefinder Leica.
I like fast cars. My passport is current.
