I was bored with school and needed a way looking for something meaningful to put my energy into: So I started going to punk shows and bringing my camera. It was a way to contribute to the scene and get into shows for free.
I have shot photos for Metal Blade Records, and wrote for and photographed bands for Flipside and Maximum Rocknroll. I promoted a few shows as a teenager and as a student in college. These days I work as a Technical Delivery Manager at a Consulting Firm and live with my partner in Seattle. I have a cat named Willie and my dad is responsible for all this.
