My introduction to photography came in the form of my dad's Nikon FE, an all-manual film camera that is now considered vintage. At age 11, I immediately fell in love with the sense of discovery gained by seeing my world through the lens of a camera.
Spanning a number of different photographic genres, I have been shooting professionally for the past 14 years. From documentary-style wedding photography, to a staff position at an award-winning newspaper, to photographing families and children, my work over the years has been held together by a common thread: to tell a story.
I believe a meaningful portrait goes beyond simply a smile and the click of the shutter. There is always a story... a relationship, a milestone, a dream. Those stories punctuate our lives and define who we are. That is what I strive to capture through both still images and portrait films.
Raised in Rochester, NY, and having lived both in the midwest and on the west coast, I have been happily calling Chester County home for the past nine years.
