from the early 2000s, i’ve made a career for myself as a new york city based skateboard photographer and the founding publisher of 43 magazine. as i continue to love skateboarding and photographing it’s non-corporate side, i’ve developed a growing interest in additional documentary subjects and portraiture - exploring stories of extraordinary people with what i consider non-fiction photography.


my photography has been featured as the covers of kingpin magazine, skateboarder magazine, and slap magazine, and in color magazine, monster skateboard magazine, the new york times, the skateboard mag, thrasher magazine, transworld skateboarding magazine, and many more.

my photography has proudly supported independent, skateboarder owned and operated companies, including 5boro, alien workshop, autobahn, bones, coda, creation, domestics, emerica, expedition one, listen, organika, politic, rasa libre, satori, shut, stereo, traffic, and venture.
