Last summer as part of a series of interviews and portraits of ministers
I sat down and interviewed Father Francis Bennedict,
a franciscan monk at St. Andrew’s Abbey which is tucked away in the high dessert of Ca.
He was incredibly kind and welcoming. I look forward to continuing a relationship with him.
Here are a few of my favorite images from the McKibben wedding in Malibu, Ca
A little while back I visited Michael Eagle’s church in Compton, Ca.
It was great to hear about what he and his church are doing for the
for the people that walk through their doors and the local community.

Over the last six months I’ve been assisting Joseph Llanes, a music and celebrity portrait photographer and documentarian. He’s been making some incredible work and its been a blast to assist and set up lighting for some of his shoots for AOL, Rolling Stone and Billboard featuring Justin Bieber and Adam Lambert to name-drop a few. Check out his incredible body of work here.
In every issue, RAGGED features four up and coming artists. This issue asked me to make a short playlist for their readers. Creating my perfect playlist was a challenge but I eventually settled on four tracks that I have been stuck on the past year. My feature is posted below. Check out RAGGED at raggedmag.com
Special thanks to Jordan Nakamura for second shooting and assisting me. His work is fantastic.
