I’m a photographer based in Freeport, Maine, but I’m originally from New Jersey and spent 21 years living on Long Island, New York. My first love is exploring the landscape around me, across the country, and around the world. There is nothing more satisfying than being awake to witness the sunrise, whether it’s at Quoddy Head State Park in Maine, or from the top of Sentinel Dome in Yosemite National Park. My aim is not to create a literal reproduction of the scene, but to use the tools at hand including my camera and lenses, filters, and tripod, to capture my own personal interpretation of the scene. My goal is to capture the emotion I feel when I witness the scene.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art degree from Kean University in NJ, am an educator for Hunt’s Photo Adventures, and in the past was a trainer and technical specialist for Canon USA.
