Noah was born in Gold Beach, Oregon but grew up throughout California. As a California kid, he could always be found in and around water. Soon after deciding there wasn’t a large salary to be had as a professional water polo player, he discovered photography.
In 1996 he graduated with a BFA in photography from San Francisco State University. Searching to learn more he moved to Los Angeles. There, he attended California institute of the Arts and received his M.F.A. in photography in 2000.
Now an official Angeleno, when not behind the camera lens Noah can be found in the ocean, on his bike or running the streets of sunny so-cal.
