In my work, I look to capture the true nature of what exists on a meaningful day and the beauty that resides in each and every day. Portraying an honest interpretation of people naturally in their lives is my priority, capturing memories that will be shared for generations ahead. I am interested in relationships among family and friends and those unique interactions that, in part, define who we are. It is a true honor to be invited to tell these stories through my photographs and I always approach each day with the reverence it deserves.
I grew up on the North Fork of Long Island and in 2005 moved to Boston to study at The School of The Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University. There I studied classical drawing techniques with an emphasis on conceptual and contemporary art. In short, my work there ultimately honed in on natural human behaviors extracted from raw photographs, revealing fleeting moments that reveal emotions with profound depth. This led to a very natural progression into my career as a photographer.
Not long after graduating, my heart brought me back to the North Fork and I began to explore the passion that had emerged out of my work in Boston. I chose to focus on the photograph itself as the work of art and I am excited to have the amazing opportunity to capture the essence of celebration, love and family.
In 2011 I married my age old love and we now have two beautiful children, an awesome dog, cat and an eclectic flock of chickens. We are always thoroughly enjoying the pleasures of our East End home near the beach, otherwise, we can be found savoring the serenity of our cabin deep in the woods of the Catskills.
