I was born in Denver, November 2nd, 1959. When I was 10, my uncle gave me an 8mm movie camera, and showed me how to make animated movies.
I grew up in Arcadia, California in the bitchin' 70's, playing guitar in garage bands and absorbing nearby Hollywood culture.
After studying photography at Art Center College of Design, I opened my first photo studio in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, in 1986. By 1991, I had began documenting and romanticizing the emerging underground hot rod and pin-up culture in California.
My photographs have been exhibited, collected and published worldwide.
