I am a photographer based in Seattle.
My primary focus is fashion and model-related photography, which includes editorial, beauty, and commercial applications. My clientele ranges from local, regional, and international apparel companies, designers, corporate, portraiture, and more.
I’ve been working professionally since 2005, mostly in cities on the west coast, though I've periodically taken assignments in Asia. In 2013 I spent several months on the road doing a 35-city ‘road trip’ tour, which allowed me to shoot for new agencies and clients around the country while also producing photography workshops.
Prior to photography I spent 20 years training and teaching in a variety of martial arts. That period of my life definitely shaped the way I look at the world. It taught me fundamental lessons about discipline and confidence. I’m never satisfied, tend to be self-critical and very discerning of the imagery I choose to share with the world.
I come from a bi-cultural Chinese/European heritage, and was raised first generation American. I’m drawn to the melting pot, ethnic ambiguity, and non-mainstream aesthetics.
In recent years, backpacking and the ‘wilderness experience’ have become a major facet of how I like to spend my time and energy. It’s both my personal and professional passion in one, and it gives me peace of mind and inspiration for future work.
