I am a fun and playful flâneur. I am based in San Francisco and work all over the world. My photographs have been seen in the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, 7×7 magazine, on the covers of MacAdam/Cage books, and in countless wedding albums. I've been an ESL teacher in France, a camp counselor, an office diva, and a compost truck driver. I've loved every job, but being a photographer is my favorite!
- I love to improvise on the piano, wander around Paris, make lentil soup, and hike in Marin county.
- I couldn't live without pickles!
- I can juggle, and I can beatbox.
Favourite Place to Shoot in San Francisco
The Mission district murals, and Bernal Hill
