Growing up with a love for reading, I studied English at VCU, and have worked in the hospitality industry for most of my life since then, reading and writing fiction in my spare time. I also have a small business, making bespoke leather goods (and writing my own copy), since 2012. I began working for Heddels after meeting Editor Gerald Ortiz while working at Unionmade Goods in San Francisco (who also got me the job at Unionmade). Being the son of a professional photographer who was an immigrant, I grew up taking a ton of photos throughout my life, and photography (primarily portraiture) remains a passion of mine. Of late, running and fitness, drawing and painting have taken priority in my life. Please reach out to me if you'd like to know more about me.
