Digital Tech & Retoucher

How did you get into the industry?

Started out as a photo assistant right out of art school (R.I.P C.V.A) :-(

What inspires you?


What is your hometown?

Saint Paul, MN

Favorite restaurant?

Broadway Pizza, specifically the Broadway Pizza in Saint Anthony. IMHO square cut thin crust pizza is the best pizza and BP has the best version of that in the Twin Cities.

What do you like to do on the weekends?

Try to get out of the house with our 7 year old boy/girl twins. This happens with varying degrees of success.

What is your favorite band or type of music?

Roger Miller / Vince Staples / Scared of Chaka / Emmylou Harris / Springsteen / D4 / Harry Belafonte / Leikeli47

What's the best piece of advice you've ever been given?

Nobody wins unless everybody wins

What book, movie read/seen recently you would recommend and why?

Any chance i get, I will always recommend the very underrated movie, Black Dynamite (2009). It’s a parody of Blaxploitation films from the 70’s. Not only is it one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen, but you can also tell how much attention they put into the look of the film. It looks like it's a movie from that time, which makes it that much funnier.

Are you a traveler or a homebody? Why?
