His recent work focuses on the ephemerality of the pornographic image and body through the use of alternative photographic printing methods. His interests in human sexuality, HIV/AIDS, and custom photo emulsions stem from years of working in the healthcare field as a medical and laboratory assistant.

In addition to his art practice, he has taught studio classes at the University of Arizona, as well as, worked at the Center for Creative Photography as an educational docent.
