I was born in 1976 in Southwest Texas and raised in Dallas, Texas. I'm currently based in Louisville, Kentucky. 

"Modern Ruins" is an ongoing series dedicated to documenting abandoned historic architecture. These images are a meditation on preservation, historical aesthetics and the relationship between social change and our built environments. The majority of these photographs were taken with medium format film using either a Yashica Mat 124G or a Meopta Flexaret IV.

The panoramic collection features film photography taken with a Holga Wide Angle pinhole and a Widelux F7.

I currently work as a professional real estate photographer and have been a contract photographer for Airbnb since 2012.
