I have been assisting since 2011 and shooting photos since 2006. I worked under Milk Studios Digital Techs and coordinators in Los Angeles. I spent a year under celebrity photographer Vijat Mohindra as his personal digital tech, working on shoots for names like Creative Recreation, Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Yahoo! Shine, Gwen Stefani, and B Aukerland (Madonna's Stylist). I spent another year working lighting and digitech under LA local Wes Klain. I studied Digital Archiving under supervision of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Photographic department / Digital Manager.

When it comes to lighting and technical questions, I'm at my best. Deconstructing light setups, weird software issues, a hardware or pack malfunction, broken drives. There's a reason my friends call me

at weird hours and ask me to facetime them through their issues.

I work almost exclusively with Profoto lights and Capture One on shoots. I'm well versed in Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom, having been a beta tester for Lightroom.

Because of my experience working with editorial staff through public relations, I often work well with art directors and producers on shoots. If I can help relay their thoughts and concerns while passing the notes onto photographers, I find it helps smooth out shoots. My job is to be your second eyes on a set and make sure images look their best.

Gear available for shoots includes:

Fully loaded Macbook Pro
24" NEC Monitor
27" Apple Thunderbolt Display
Magliner with shelf
Profoto lighting
Mola Rayo
Mola Setti (silver)
Profoto Ring Flash w/ widesoft reflector
