Oh hi. I’m Jeff.

I live in Chicagoland with my fiancée, Amanda; our son, William; and fur child, Walter. Since I was 12 or 13 I’ve had job titles like lawn mower, car washer, retail associate (and its variations), pharmacy technician, dock hand, copy editor, editorial assistant, taproom manager, brewery operations manager, social media marketing manager, and probably a few others.

I also spent a long time as a credentialed photojournalist, but I’ve found I most enjoy making photos and telling stories that help brands and businesses find, shape, or amplify their voice. I do this a lot with Amanda as 28 West Creative, but you can also get in touch with me directly at

Here’s a few places that published my photos

Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Sun-Times, Time Out Chicago, The Chicago Reader, Aurora Beacon-News, Naperville Sun, DownBeat, Music Inc., AOL, Beer Advocate, UFC Magazine, Zagat, Good Beer Hunting, Fuck Yeah! Sharks.
