I’m an artist and freelance photographer who graduated from Biola University with a Bachelor of Fine Art. Coming from a fine art background and an interdisciplinary concentration (i.e. photography, figure drawing, ceramics), I seek to produce imagery that will go beyond minimal editing with creative flare. I have experience with various mediums such as charcoal and gouache painting, which at times influence my photographic style. I enjoy being of assistance and I allow freedom for a photojournalistic approach that is at times combined with an artistic vision, yet structured and well composed. Photography is a wonderful means for me to be other oriented in a special and creative way. My objective as a photographer is to produce imagery that is majestic, upholding elegance, timelessness, and sophistication. Located in United States, California, Orange County. Willing to travel in Orange County, California and parts of Los Angeles area.

ESPIED: DECEMBER 10, 2012
-Solo gallery exhibition, titled ESPIED, in photography at the Biola University main gallery.
Growing up in an Italian household, I became intrigued with how my family communicated through body language. I enjoy photographing special candid moments of those closest to me, for those people inspire me. Needing to focus solely on them, I isolate and separate expression and gesture from verbal speech and setting. Since time holds a presence within setting, by removing the setting time is partially hidden. For the exhibition titled Espied, my photographs may hold muteness, but they still retain visual dialogue, exchange, and mystery through the representation of expression and body language. In Espied the Italian culture holds the spotlight. Most of the photographs are candid. Italian gestures, movements, and perspective greatly influence the manner and style in which I photograph the individuals represented, not only my family.
