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 vintage TLR (twin-lens reflex) cameras.

Night Work also features medium format film photography.  Panoramics include images made with either a Holga Wide Angle pinhole or a Widelux F7.

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