Now located in Madrid, Spain.
My Career is in the visual arts for commercial work in media and advertising creating still and moving images for commercial purposes that have a vision, tell a story or sell an idea.

What am I doing today?
Staying home and slowly returning to normal following the healthiest guidelines possible. Covid-19 has hit most of us in a tremendous way and we must find solidarity to help the world.
I have been using my time wisely reflecting on my 30 years of photographing by editing a large scale project that will span my career. I have also been writing articles and stories which include one too soon be published on conservation and what the importance of questioning animals in captivity for saving species from the threat of extinction. Editorials have slowed down although am currently working on an interesting production of music group portraits to be announced soon. Consulting and teaching have been online except for my recent talk at Centro Universitario in Madrid. Even though commercial work has been a challenge personal work and keeping the pace has not.
