What interested you about becoming a photographer?
– I've always used cameras for as long as I can remember. I used to play with my father's old Brownie Hawkeyes. Then I won a Kodak 110 instamatic for an essay I wrote about milk when I was 8 or 9. From that day on I essentially shot a roll of film a week. I photographed everything. I got better.

Where do you find inspiration to make your photographs?
– At this point most of my work is very much planned. I'll get an idea in my head, jot it down if I'm lucky, and develop it from there. It's usually just a germ of an idea though. I very much like to "wing it" in a photo session, and just see what happens.

What do you most like to photograph?
– People. I consider most of my work to be portraiture in some form or another.

Who are your favorite photographers?
– Imogen Cunningham. Dorothea Lange. Annie Leibovitz. Lisette Model. Francesca Woodman. Diane Arbus. Lewis Hine.
