When I was 8 years old, the excitement generated by the suspense of waiting for my KODAK INSTAMATIC 110 photos to be processed at the drugstore, was almost unbearable. Far from being a professional at that point, I received my very first Reflex, a Pentax K1000 from my father when I was 10 years old and he taught me how to meter light. He later showed me how to develop my own black & white film and make prints. Photography has changed and developed since then and my passion has grown along with it. I started out as a graphic designer & news photographer in the United States where I worked from 1992 to 1999. From 1999 to 2010 I lived and worked as a professional advertising photographer in Madrid, Spain. Although I began work as a graphic designer in an advertising studio, I soon undertook freelance photography for this studio until finally starting up my own company, DigitalWorkflow in 2003. In 2010 I moved to Italy to be close to my girlfriend, whom I married in July 2013. I am based in Italy, however I am frequently flying to London, Madrid, Milan, Amsterdam, Barcelona, and many other european capitals for many clients such as Nike, Coca-Cola, Chevorlet, just to name a few. I am fluent in english, spanish and italian. I was an AFS exchange student in Italy, where had the most wonderful experience of going to art school. I really believe I found who I was at age 18 and that is why I moved back to europe.
