I've enjoyed taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I loved the idea that I could capture and preserve the intricacies of light and color. I got my first DSLR when I started working for my college newspaper, and it was there that I discovered the power of photography to tell stories. I was hooked.
After a brief stint as a photojournalist I changed course to pursue Earth science. I turned my lens on the incredible landscapes and far-flung places of the world, telling visual stories for government agencies, non-profits, and companies. I also won a handful of awards for my photography along the way.
Earth is a dynamic place, full of fascinating stories and drama playing out over minutes to millennia. But I missed creating moments and memories for people. So I returned to portrait photography, bringing my photojournalistic tendencies and love of landscapes with me. The result is a style that puts people in the context of their world, exploring uniqueness and how it fits in to something bigger.
When I'm not behind the camera, I can often be found hiking one of the many gorgeous Maine trails with my wife and our dog, trying the clam chowder at a new restaurant, looking at rocks, or playing music.
Oh, and if there's any opportunity to travel, I'll take it.
