I'm a hyper-social editorial and portrait photographer.
I was first hired by the Corcoran Gallery of Art and Washingtonian Magazine.
Being a photographer means that you always feel compelled to have your camera with you. People expect you to be making art every moment of every day; it's hard to turn that off.
Since I don't build things and have a partner who does, I'm lucky enough to defer to him on all things engineering-related.
My grandmother's ring, which I wear every day.
When I was trying to juggle a 90 hour/week job and being an artist. Needless to say, my art suffered.
I was a community manager doing marketing for an extremely popular tech start-up. I expressed my unwillingness to continue working 90 hours/week and when I left, I became a full time photographer. Best choice ever!
Hearing about how they were the first to give the No Kings Collective project, "The Document" a chance to show in the District.
Reading artist biographies and memoirs - I find it fascinating to get an insight into their creative process.
Eating a giant panda eating a popsicle at the National Zoo! Everything else is too juicy to share.
Fireball, fireworks, fishnets, or just the right friends. All of those things in combination with one another: PARTY GOLD.
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU LIED ABOUT? DON'T LIE.
""I'll be there at 10am!"" ...I'm always a little bit late, so any time estimate I give ends up being a lie.
