I remember my first concert. Billy Squire opened with Foreigner headlining at Madison Square Garden in 1983. I was thirteen years old. Four years later I was in the sixth row at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater for the Jerry Garcia Band and the next year began traveling to see the Grateful Dead extensively through the summer of 1995. I had wide interests in music, especially live performances. It wasn't until 1998 that I started taking my camera to shows.

Combining two of my passions, photography and music, has helped refine my photography skills as I continue to learn. I have been working with Kynd Music Magazine since 2005 and now also work with Glide Magazine. Photography to me is an enjoyable challenge, not a job; especially when photographing live music performances where I work with available light trying to capture moments and expressions that last a split second. The expression of energy and spirit is what I am trying to convey.

I have had the opportunity to photograph many recent summers' highlights from sidestage at each Bonnaroo as well as Phil Lesh & Friends at The Warfield Theater, The Dead at The Red Rocks Amphitheater, the first annual Echo Project in Atlanta and the last three Warren Haynes Xmas Jams. I frequently photograph shows at Asheville's largest club, The Orange Peel and worked as the staff photographer for the first annual Ashefest Music and Arts Festival in 2007. I am eager to work with different bands, festivals and publications.
