Baltimore Artist, Photographer, Filmmaker
My artistic vision finds its purpose in revealing those small, brilliant moments often overlooked within a larger story. Whether through photography or film, I strive to elevate the hidden details and unique narratives that resonate with viewers. I'm the lead photographer at Maryland Leaf Magazine, based in Baltimore, MD.
My journey started in the late 80s, capturing the energy of the skateboarding, punk rock, and underground hip-hop scenes. In college, history and guerrilla marketing became my focus. I found myself not only playing in a touring band for almost a decade, but also delving into the world of digital audio engineering for a burgeoning dot.com.
A passion for promotion and production led me to co-found a company with a talented group of creatives. We brought in DJs and indie acts, orchestrating events with a focus on exclusivity and curated experiences. This honed my experiential branding skills, skills I now apply to Maryland Connoisseur – a brand that connects with its audience in a way similar to a band with its fans.
A decade in a wireless wholesale distribution business sharpened my commercial photography, marketing, and website design expertise. These skills were invaluable when I launched Maryland Connoisseur as a branding experiment, an experiment that flourished as the state's legal cannabis program blossomed. I recognized the potential to build a local media company specializing in connoisseur lifestyle branding within Maryland's cannabis and CBD wellness community.
These are some of the amazing brands I have worked with:
