  Hi. I take photos (mostly with film) and sometimes make other things like analog color photograms.

After growing up in Kansas City I lived for a stretch in New York City, where I did a yearlong program at the International Center of Photography. Now I'm based in Portland, Ore., with my spouse and kid; I work as an editor and continue making photo-related things.

I've shown work in various spaces (including Newspace Center for Photography in Portland; Chashama Gallery in New York; the Halide Project in Philadelphia; the Institute of Visual Arts in Milwaukee; Lightbox in Astoria, Ore.; and the Pacific Northwest Photography Viewing Drawers at Portland's Blue Sky Gallery). I'm part of the Portland photo group Lightleak, and a while ago completed a round of the Portland Grid Project. I resisted Instagram for a while but finally have an account. I also have a now-neglected Tumblr with new and old material, and contributed to the all-Instax Tumblr Instax Gratification.

If you'd like to request a print, talk about showing or publishing my work, or just say hi, drop an email to:
