I was born in Switzerland to Scottish/Austrian parents and grew up in a tiny village next to the Rhine. At 13 I took my first photography class. At the time my parents had a Paris Match and Newsweek subscription. As I thumbed through the pages of these periodicals the images held my attention captive.
However, there were other roads to travel before settling down: despite initial fascination with the power of photography, my initial academic inclination was architecture which strongly informs my approach to composition. On graduation my path led me to reconcile my interest in form and aesthetics at Munich School of Photography and I have been looking through the lens ever since.
My wife and I relocated to New York City in 2012 where we are currently based.
