Growing up in the odd sanctity of suburbia, I was left with an undying obsession to seek out the meaning of how one should encounter the world; a world not contingent upon mini-malls and giant cookie-cutter developments from the cold war era.
I am a self-proclaimed adventurer constantly on the prowl for a well told story or a masterful image. I’ve lived in Connecticut, Vermont, Utah, Rhode Island, Boston, California and now New York, but this will be where I rest for some time until I am gray and wise enough to whisk my wife out of the city and into the pastures of green and gold. Until then, I continue to photograph and write about the people and places that mean something to me. With pen in hand and a camera slung over my shoulder, I happily travel to the unwritten corners of my destinations in order to learn about the community and the history from those that can recall.
From age fifteen I began publishing my writing and photography in an Eastern Snowboarding magazine that I self published called SSAS (Snow, Skate and Style). While I ended up distributing SSAS internationally, it was time for me to leave the nest and head off to college. I went on to receive my Bachelor of Arts in Writing, Literature and Publishing from Emerson College. After taking and enjoying a photojournalist position for The Block Island Times, I began my career as a freelance writer and photographer (amongst other things!). Now, I live in New York City and I am excited to be doing what I love for a living.
