I was born in London in 1966 and have lived in the Washington DC area since 1987. I've been a keen photographer for as long as I can remember.

- Partner at Exposed DC
- Official photographer of the DC Rollergirls

- 2010-2013: Photo editor and pool photographer with DCist
- 2007-2009: Official photographer for (now-defunct) professional soccer club Crystal Palace Baltimore

Other Activities:
- 2013: Juror for Leica Store DC's first juried exhibition, DC As I See It

My photographs are hanging in dozens of private collections. They are also held in one public collection - my orange (London) series was purchased by the DC Government's Art Bank for their permanent collection. Those four photographs are currently on permanent display at DC City Hall.
