I am a photographer and image-maker based in New York City, recognized for my work in advertising and portraiture for many companies, including The New York Stock Exchange, Macy’s, Pfizer, BMW, British Airways, Nikon, Sony and Toyota.  I’ve had the privilege of taking portraits of people such as David Bowie, James Earl Jones, Denzel Washington and the Dalai Lama and many of my photos are included in the permanent collection of the Portland Museum of Art and shows at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.  Recently, I have been doing a lot of commercial work as a director cameraman. When Oliver presented me with the script for AWOL, I knew that it could contain new images I wanted to capture. I believe, thanks to the talent and passion of AWOL’s cast and crew, we did.
