Thank you for visiting my website! I am a photographer currently living in Washington, DC. I grew up in Cleveland, OH, with an avid passion for fishing, hiking and anything that involved the outdoors. It wasn't until my senior year of college at Miami University when I took an intro photography class, that I realized, photography is the perfect gateway to my passions and the best way to help make a difference in the world. A few short years later and with a little luck, the company I was working for relocated to Canada and I received a severance package. Over the next 8 months, I traveled extensively - camping, fishing and most importantly, developing my photography skills along the way. It's now been almost 10 years since I first got into the world of photography but my philosophy has always stayed the same: Get off the beaten path and see a side of nature that most people don't get to experience, so that I can share those unique experiences with those who view my photos. A few years ago, I had the opportunity to work at a remote lodge in Alaska as a fishing & brown bear viewing guide. Simply put, it was an utterly incredible experience and allowed me to capture wildlife photos in a way I never imagined. At the end of that summer, I did something I never thought I would do. I ended up quitting my stable job in finance to pursue my photography dreams...Now, most days you can find me on the road in pursuit of the next adventure.
Nature - specifically wildlife, holds a special place in my heart. If I can inspire those who view my photos to help out the environment or work to save a particular species, it would mean I accomplished my ultimate goal. Through my photos I also hope to inform my viewers of different environmental issues and the wonders of the natural world, as well as to share the emotion and enthusiasm I have for the outdoors. For that reason, 25% of the proceeds from specific photos, is donated to a foundation or non-profit dedicated to the conservation of that species or environment. Detailed information about the foundations and their cause can be found on the purchase page and checkout of specific photos.
