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
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.
