and I creatively capture the people of Cleveland, Ohio.
My theater directing experience allows me to anticipate moments of human emotion and expression that show in my work. Helping you to look your best, is what I do best. I also know a thing or two about great lighting, setting the scene, and wrangling groups of people and pets. (Don’t underestimate the abilities of anyone who has directed a community theatre production of Annie, and has lived to tell the tale.)
As a photographer, I have a unique background in that I got my start on the theatre stage and not behind a camera. I learned about framing and group composition by watching theatre directors and choreographers work within the confines of a stage. I received an MA in Theatre (specializing in theatre directing) from Case Western Reserve University where I also served as the primary photographer for the College of Arts and Sciences for five years.
In my “off” time you will find me out in the woods hiking and camping my way through our National Parks with my 9 lb. mutt, Nutmeg. Or as I like to call it – location scouting!
