I have been very fortunate to have experience shooting projects all over the world. I have workedÂ hanging off by one hand from a rebar bridge suspended 500m over emptiness duringÂ the building of the Son La Dam in remote Vietnam to luxury travel & hotels in Dubai and Oman to shooting corporate image libraries for Forune 500 companies in San Francisco and SÃ£o Paulo and NGO reportage photography and video in Haiti.
IÂ grewÂ up in Florida. My Mom(Dutch) and Dad(American)Â worked as an acupuncturist and luxury home builder.Â As a teen, my mother took me to the Middle East by accident at the start of the first Gulf War. and then to Europe and opened my eyes to the world. After graduating from the University of Florida I set out to discover more and went to New Zealand where I worked odd jobs and did some commercial film work.
After serendipitously ending up in Southeast Asia, I was heavily influenced by the people I met and the places I experienced and began to pursue photography seriously as way to share my experiences. It is a privilege to be able to document and visually communicate the life of a person or what an organization does and I am honored to be able to do so as my career.
I have been based in Hanoi, Vietnam since 2006 and have been commissioned by Fortune 500 companies, international and regional magazines and NGOs for a wide range of Vietnam and Southeast Asia photography and videography projects including: commercial, documentary, corporate, portraiture, industrial and editorial. I am also currently represented byÂ Wonderful Machine,Â Getty Global AssignmentsÂ andÂ Noi Pictures.
