One of my favorite shots. The couple, background and the sun were all perfect.

I do

And never let this be hold against me... I shoot bridals and engagements. These are few of the most beautiful and elegant brides I've had the honor of shooting:

Every home should have one

I really think every home needs a mobile/a hanging art piece. They are so delightful and entertaining for both grownups and kids.

Very cool mobiles available at

I like

... a lot of stuff. I really think we're surrounded by all these beautiful things that can transform to amazing things in right hands. Even the ugliest things can transform into something worth looking if the vision is right.

I love the beautiful and so brilliant ugly things...

The Revinylize Project promotes and encourages social awareness with the power of creativity. By reclaiming local billboard material, the once giant images are transformed into smaller works of art in the form of unique vinyl bags and accessories.

The Revinylize Project empowers the public to use design thinking to stimulate thought, dialog and action by holding workshops, community events and local projects.

The font consists entirely of ampersands, to represent the idea of people coming together to help one another. Type designers, graphic designers, and other artists from around the world contributed artwork to the font.

Nearly 400 designers contributed to “Coming Together”. And I am glad I was able to be part of this project. Two of my friends, Brad and Matt, also contributed to this project.

These are some of my heroes in the design world. Their work has influenced me and I will always look up to their timeless designs and inspirations.

ALVAR AALTO: a Finnish architect and designer. Aalto studied at the Jyväskylä Lyceum school, which is the High School I later attended. He got his degree in architecture from Helsinki University of Technology. After graduation he returned to Jyväskylä and opened his first architectural office there. And as growing up I was able to admire his work up close. Buildings designed by him were everywhere around my home town. Frank Lloyd Wright called his design for Finnish Pavillion at the 1939 New York World's Fair as a "work of genius". This helped his reputation grow in the USA. Aalto vase is probably the most famous and influential out of all of his designs and I have to admit I have 2 of those at my house.

JEAN PROUVÉ: a French engineer and designer. His main achievement was transferring manufacturing technology from industry to architecture, without losing aesthetic qualities. His furnishings are one of the most sought after mid-century designs. His designs speak of a work philosophy that includes knowledge of the materials at hand, a commitment to collaboration between artists and craftsmen, an attention to evolving technical developments, and "the principle of never postponing decisions so as neither to lose the impetus nor indulge in unrealistic forecasts".
