As the lead photographer and resident photography instructor at LIRISI Photography (www.lirisi.com), I specialize in styles of portrait and event photography that aim to capture the deeply intriguing drama as well as the unique beauty of each person and moment that I photograph. I also teach LIRISI's free weekly photography class to nearly two dozen pro and amateur photographers from the Detroit Metro area and coordinate its premium photography mentoring program.
In addition to spending time with my wife, best friend, and business partner, Cheryl, I thoroughly enjoy bird photography, swimming, mountain biking, playing the piano, watching sports, and listening to every genre of music from opera and jazz to gospel and EDM! People often ask me what all of my hobbies and interests have in common. Well, it's all about engaging in some serious learning while having some serious fun.
