I was born in Laredo, Texas in 1967. In 1990 I enrolled at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts and studied dramatic writing. In 1993 I wrote and directed an 80-minute videofilm titled Low Fidelity High that was awarded a Silver Hugo at the Chicago Film Festival.
In January of 1996, while walking along the West Side Highway, I chanced upon a reflection of the World Trade Center that triggered my journey into the world of reflected light. In September of 1997, with the help of Icelandic dynamic directing duo The Snorri Brothers, I directed the music video "Summer" for scottish band, Mogwai.
While the rest of my story can be pieced together from the images and videos on this site, it is worth mentioning that a sub plot of my photographic journey concerns the vast archive of pictures of the World Trade Center that I shot in the days immediately preceding September 11th, 2001. That story can be found in my 25-minute documentary, The Tower Age.
