At the risk of sounding cliche, my brain has always thought creatively. As far back as I can remember, I thought of things in a photo format. Either still images or in a movie like setting, it's just how I see the world.

As a young teenager, growing up in a suburb of Washington, D.C., I was a paperboy for the Washington Post. Every morning I was excited to see the main photographs on A1 and the Metro sections of the paper. This is where I first developed a love for photojournalism. I would grab my father's Nikon FG-20, jump on a Metro Bus and head to the Mall in Washington, D.C. to pretend I was a news photographer. I would take photos near the White House, Vietnam War Memorial and Smithsonian Institute and shoot whatever I found interesting. It was in these early years that my career path was chosen.

It's been many years since those days but nothings really changed except now I don't have to pretend I'm shooting for a media outlet. I have worked for the some of the smallest and largest publications in the news world. The Catholic Review, Carroll County Times, The Daily Times, Washington Post and Boston Globe to name a few. My photos have appeared in countless newspapers and magazines throughout the world including Coastal Style Magazine, US News & World Report and Time.

Currently I live on the Eastern Shore of Maryland in America's Coolest Small Town - Berlin, Maryland. I spend my time off with my wife and three boys. I regularly accept editorial and commercial assignments on the DelMarVa Peninsula, greater Washington D.C./Baltimore corridor, Northern Delaware and New Jersey and New York, including New York City.
