Born in Hawaii and raised in sunny Los Angeles, I’ve been fortunate to be exposed to not only beautiful places but fascinating people that I’ve drawn inspiration from. With over ten years of experience both in front of the camera as an actor/model and behind the camera as a photographer and videographer, I have crafted my expertise in visually communicating. I am drawn and driven by collaboration and bringing out the unique individuality of people and brands and connecting them to their audience.

My creative pursuit in portraiture is to show the beauty, grace, strength and enthusiasm of people. I focus on highlighting an aspect of who they are, what they're about, and look for a sense of novelty and simplicity in my work. I also like to help tell memorable stories that inspire positive lifestyle and gravitate towards projects that feel intimate and authentic.

I am confident that I can tackle any project efficiently and provide timely delivery of end product. I believe deeply in teamwork, community, and communication to avoid errors.

Let's connect and collaborate!


I would love to help tell your story.
