A note about food:
Food is a super important part of all of our lives, it’s what gets us out the door in the morning and makes us feel at home when we return, it’s what we worry about when times are tough. It’s often some of the strongest ways we show our love for one another.
As such it’s very important to me not to waste the food I photograph. The vast majority of the food I work with is edible, gets used after, and I strive to avoid any tricks that render it inedible. Food waste and food scarcity are important issues that affect all of our communities and I hope to be a part in combating both throughout my career.
In the meantime please check out the LA Food Bank or your local resources!
A Note about me:
Originally from small town Greenfield, MA (claim to fame: birthplace of magician Penn Jillette and producer of machine part the ‘tap and die’), I’ve spent over the last decade in Los Angeles working on many different aspects of the photo industry, from editing major award show photos, to developing brand imagery, photographing people, cosmetics, now with a concentration on food.
I bring this well rounded photo background and some good old fashioned punk rock DIY resourcefulness to every project!
I can frequently be found looking for props at thrift stores, listening to true crime podcasts, seeking out new snacks, arguing about wrestling, editing photos with my dog Zuzu at my feet or watching foreign song + dance competitions with my Mr.
If you see me in the wild say hello, I’m pretty nice.
