I started attending shows in 2007. Shortly thereafter, my office got a new camera and I learned to use it by documenting every show I attended. As a result, I have an archive of over 20,000 photos. I'm currently on call by the theatre management and performers to photograph shows as needed for press.

A monthly show at Largo in Los Angeles. I first saw this show at SF Sketchfest on assignment. I didn't understand what I was watching, but the audience was insanely enthusiastic about it.
When Acker & Blacker invited me to photograph the show back in Los Angeles, I slowly caught on to the nuances (and crazy surprise guests) that have garnered them a rabid following.
Paul F. Tompkins hosts a variety show every month at Largo in Los Angeles.
The Midnight Show, the only show at UCB I've returned to over the years on a monthly basis due to its consistently clever sketches. Always a great and messy show to photograph.
