I have frequently been called the “Renaissance Man” for my many talents. I can play the guitar, bass, ukulele, drums, piano, and sing. Then I teach guitar, bass, and ukulele classes at my part-time job at Jammin' Music & Arts. I also have a decked out home recording studio where my brother and I record us and other aspiring musicians. I felt that touring around Long Beach with my band was not enough, so my dad and I built a 16' x20' stage in our backyard. Now the cool rock shows are closer to home. After all that when I tell my friend I also do professional photography they almost always reply, “What do you NOT do?”

 

As a photographer I specialize in Concert Photography, Portraits, and Event Photography. I am also a full time student at California State University of Long Beach studying Business Finance (my other deep passion). Being a gigging musician, I have had my fair amount of photographers at my shows. I learned what shots that looked great, and what shots were not. After my band broke up in 2014, instead of dreading over the tear, I took that negative energy and put it into learning photography.

 

Now you will most likely either find me shooting bands, at home editing photos in Lightroom, or researching groundbreaking advances in photography while binge listening to Electronic Dance Music (EDM).

 

My goals as a Concert Photographer is to shoot my favorite DJ's Skrillex, Knife Party, and Excision. If I could work for my all-time heroes, my life would be complete.
