What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?
I mostly wonder about things...Do animals wish their lives were different? Do they sit around wishing they had longer legs, or curlier hair? How long can an alligator hold its breath? Why do people hate opossums so much? (I think they're cute.) What is Eric Estrada up to these days? Why do I know who Eric Estrada is when I've never even seen CHiPs. TV shows were so different in the 70's and 80's, actors didn't have to be so "hot" they just had to act. Remember when everyone thought Kurt Russel and Burt Reynolds were so manly? Now we have that guy from Aquaman who looks like he's been chiseled from marble and we would say Kurt and Burt had "dad bods."
When did that change?
How would you sell hot cocoa in Florida?
Boisterously with lots of jokes.
What's your backstory?
I earned a BFA in photography in 2007. I started my career as a stylist and have worked for an impressive list of clients which includes 3M, Best Buy, Cargill, General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, Overstock, Publix and Target.
In 2019, I built out a photo studio in my home and have been shooting beautiful images for galleries and commercial clients ever since.
I am known for my bold, clean, colorful style. I am extremely resourceful and have a broad knowledge of both traditional and digital photographic processes which makes me an excellent collaborator and powerful asset on set.
I live in Highland Park with my wife and two
dogs and will ALWAYS accept any invitation
to go swimming as well as any project involving pools!
What is your favorite band or musician?
I don't have one, but I do have a funny story about my fictitious, favorite musician. One morning, a photographer I was working with in Salt Lake City asked me what I wanted to listen to, I couldn't think of anything so I said, "I heard Elvis Costello in the car on the way to the studio and it reminded me of my friend. Let's start with that." I'm not sure the chain of events that followed, but he ended up telling almost everyone on the job, over the course of 3 weeks, that I was an Elvis Costello super fan. I think that's the closest I have come to having a favorite musician.
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
One horse-sized duck. 100 of anything is too many of anything.
If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room for the rest of your life, what would it be?
I'm tempted to say "Seven Nation Army" by The White Stripes because it's such a dramatic way to waltz into a room, but I don't think I could carry on being that serious for a whole song, so I'm going to go with "Don't Stop Me Now" by Queen. It starts off kind of subtle but then it crescendos into a really great dance number. I like the idea of dance being a regular part of me entering rooms.
What was the last gift you gave someone?
A wind chime made out of sea shells and a taxidermy pufferfish wearing a straw hat
What are you known for?
My dinner parties. And having red hair.

If you are trying to determine if an egg is still good, you can put it in a bowl of water. If it sinks, it is a fresh egg. If it sinks but stands up on end a bit, it's older but also the perfect age to hard boil because it will be easy to peel. If it floats,
it's gone bad.
