"Wanderlust" a fashion editorial for The Spoiler's Hand...

This summer I collaborated with illustrator Erin Wengrovius to produce a fashion editorial for The Spoilers Hand's fall issue, a whimsical mermaid inspired shoot photographed on location in New Jersey with Erin's custom sea inspired illustrations. The process and collaboration was a fun experience and the end result is beautiful. Enjoy!

A summer trip to Yale...

Towards the end of summer I drove up to New Haven Connecticut to visit a friend from college and check out some current photography exhibits. New Haven, the cultural capital of Connecticut and home of Ivy League college Yale is quite the poppin off town. Catering mostly to the college demographic the town is filled with vintage stores, coffee shops, and museums galore. The coolest in my opinion is The Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library. Not only is the stuff in it cool, but the building itself is an architectural beauty.

Hermann Park, Houston, Texas...

Hermann Park is an expansive 445 acre park located near Houston's museum district. In essence it is the equivalent to New York City's Central Park. The park includes art installations, a japanese garden, peddle boats, a train, natural history museum, golf course, zoo, and the list goes on. My favorite part was stumbling upon Patrick Dougherty’s stickwork art installation Boogie Woogie. It has an otherworldly eerie feel located in the park, especially when no other park goers can be found. The park is expansive and you could easily spend several days enjoying all the activities available.
