I believe that food touches people at a core emotional level, that every gnarly radish and delicate slice of cake is beautiful, and that the stories of food and the people who make and eat it need to be told.

I am a food photographer and food stylist based in Columbus, Ohio. I create natural, evocative images that capture the soul of a dish or ingredient. My approach to styling is to make food look approachable and authentic. Food should never be “too pretty to eat.”

I work with restaurants, food brands, and online and print recipe publications to create advertorial and editorial images. I shoot and style all types of dishes, but I especially love working with vegan and vegetarian foods and photographing cookbooks!
