I first picked up a camera while in high school and quickly became fascinated with depressing the shutter and waiting anxiously to get the prints back from the lab. I soon took a course in processing my own black and white film and then there was no looking back. In my senior year in high school I started working for the local newspaper processing film, helping to lay out pages and also photographing what little spot news there was in my small town.

Needing to learn more about the medium that would shape my life, I began studying black and white photography at a school in Rhode Island and soon after made the trek south to study commercial and advertising photography at the Portfolio Center in Atlanta, GA.

Upon leaving the Portfolio Center, I worked for a company doing studio and location photography full time as well as various freelance advertising, editorial and publishing assignments with a heavy dosage of sports work. My work has been published on over 35 Magazine covers and some of my publishing clients include Sports Illustrated, Outdoor Photographer, Bicycling Magazine among many others. Some of my sports jobs have included all four professional sports, Championship boxing, the Olympics and pretty much everything in between. I also have had the honor of exhibiting my Olympic images at the US Olympic Headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.

Although I now work full time doing advertising and product photography for a major corporation, I truly enjoy releasing my creativity by creating fine art portraits of individuals, families or groups of people. I also love spending time with my family and coaching my son's baseball team.
