I'm a photographer and designer focusing on photojournalism, music, action sports and politics.
In addition to six years producing an independent magazine, I've worked doing packaging design for DVD and record labels, as a designer for dynamic content websites, and was a part of the team that redesigned the identity of the Democratic Party as well as Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
