Photography isn't just my job, it's my passion. After college, I spent a few years touring around the country with an indie rock band on an small record label and shoe-string budget.  Sounds like a cliché, however that free-spirited adventure-driven lifestyle, although tremendously fun, was not without challenges.  As much as I loved the rush of performing, I discovered that I thrive on problem solving.  
I think of light in terms of sound and realized that light has similar properties to sound. At least aesthetically.  Music is my first language, yet being a musician gave me the tools to perceive light in a wonderfully abstract way that helps shape my aesthetic.  

When I'm not in the studio or on location, you can find me rolling down the road on a vintage BMW motorcycle.  I don't just like riding shiny things, I like photographing them too.   

I'm based in New York City and Northwestern Connecticut, however I'm always up for an an adventure and love traveling for assignments.

Ideally suited for portraits, my studio is located in Midtown Manhattan near Madison Square Park.  Situated in a 115 year old factory loft building, the space is unique and classic to New York City.  The main studio space is incredibly versatile with it's massive skylight providing gorgeous natural light in addition to my well-appointed studio lighting and grip.  There is a comfy lounge that also doubles as a second shooting space with large windows and beautiful light.  All of this makes for a very comfortable and productive workspace.
