My passion, purpose and vision is to create fine art, portraits and commercial images that are unforgettable. 
My inspiration and energy is drawn from my love of graphical compositions, vibrant colors and the need to communicate the beauty I see in people and our world. I'm always looking for ways to stretch myself and learn. I try to keep it simple by focusing on what I love and following my passion. I love the big picture...and all the small details. 
I received my BFA and practiced graphic design for the first 10 years of my career. My next chapter was managing projects and customers on the agency side and then I moved to the customer side (in house) working with agencies and technical partners. So, I know more than a thing or two about agencies, marketing, working with customers and managing projects and deadlines. Previous MRM agency client work includes HR Block, Taster's Choice, Nescafe, National City Bank and General Mills (Chex Party Mix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Curves, 8th Continent soy milk). Plus, SF Bay area companies such as as Bay 101 Casino, Solar Foundations, Inc, Rotary Systems, Inc. and Poly, Inc. 
Located in Santa Cruz, I specialize in architecture and interiors, macro and abstract photography, portraits, and product lifestyle photography. I enjoy working with new people and those who become friends. I hope you find my work compelling and engaging. Please email me for an estimate for your upcoming project.

A few kind words from my clients:
