I discovered photography when I was 19. I was at UC Santa Barbara, studying pre-med, and not feeling connected in any way to what I was studying.
I took photography as an elective course, and was immediately taken in. After successfully tackling the technical joys of first time photography, I started to really look at the work of photographers whom I admired. I found in the work of people like Bill Owens, Diane Arbus and William Eggleston that there were others out there who questioned normalcy; and it was great to discover that you can have a voice with photography.
I went to Art Center College of Design for photography, and graduated in 1993. Through my time at Art Center, and the few years following my graduation, I weathered the trends of cross processing and fish eye lenses, and continued to nurture my connection with photography that I felt was timeless in its beauty.
Now, 20 years later, I run a Photography Agency out of our New York and Los Angeles offices. I find great joy in cultivating and nurturing the work of photographers who I feel have a vision. I thoroughly enjoy the creative process - and I get to go through it daily with multiple artists on many different projects.
I am thankful to be able to make a living working with creative people, and having a great time doing it!
I live in South Pasadena, California with my husband Sean, my 11 year old son Miles, and our dogs Louie and Cooper. Oh, and our rabbit Shags and Guinea Pig, Zach Galiafinakis live in the vegetable garden. The daily flow of creative people provides Miles with many fantastic influences in his life!
I have offices in California and NYC, and my agency represents sixteen advertising and editorial photographers. My apartment in New York provides me the opportunity to spend time in New York often, see clients, and meet with my photographers.
