My journey in photography began at punk rock shows in New Jersey photographing bands. I moved to San Diego California in 2000 and continued following the punk and underground scenes, photographing avant garde and experimental music and submitting the photos to zines and online publications. I think that must've been the first time I began to recognize that I wanted to collect images and archive them. Over the years I made it a point to learn how to shoot in a variety of different ways and broaden my understanding of the craft of photography.
