Born in the south and raised in the northeast, I served 12 years in U.S. military before, sick of the long days, I gave up my uniform for a camera… and even longer days. An introspect with a penchant for people watching, naturally I aimed my lens at the most fascinating, and most difficult to capture, subject of all – and thus began my career/obsession with portraiture.
After moving to NYC in 2011 I earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the School of Visual Arts. I have been fortunate enough to work with and study under amazing people such as music photography legend Clay Patrick McBride, and London fashion photography giant Michael Daks. I also spent 7 months working and studying art in Paris, and 2 months shooting for modeling agencies in Milan.
For me photography is not just hobby, and not just a job. It truly is my passion and my life’s work. Complimenting that obsession is a proclivity for wandering, in the truest sense of the word. I have traversed 5 continents, sailed across 3 oceans, and have been through 42 of the 50 American states.
I call home wherever the majority of my cameras are, which at the moment is Brooklyn, NY.
