I grew up near Frankfurt, Germany, and received my post-secondary education in Germany (Freiburg and Berlin, M.A.) and in the U.S. (Princeton University, Ph.D.). For the next four years, I worked as a cognitive science researcher at the École Polytechnique in Paris, France.

I returned to the U.S. to teach philosophy, first at Johns Hopkins University, then at the University of Cincinnati. But I came to realize that my research interest (in probabilistic epistemology, of all things) didn't sit particularly well with my obligations in the classroom.

I decided to forsake academic fame and fortune for the vagaries of a freelance career in photography. My main subjects are landscape (urban as well as rural), architecture, and people.
