Born in the Eastern Pennsylvania countryside, I developed an early passion for drawing and painting the scenic places around me and naturally was drawn to pursuing an advanced art education. After discovering fine art photography during my studies, I was inspired to turn my passion into a profession and achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from Kutztown University.
I feel that an artist must have a passion for a certain subject matter to fully understand and articulate it. For me, I'm inspired by interior design, the culinary arts, craftspeople and travel. I admit that I'm more of a spectator when it comes to interior design but I'm a very active cook and cocktail creator. I love what I do and am fortunate to collaborate with extremely talented people on projects from editorial to advertising while gaining international exposure.
My home is in beautiful, rural Bucks County, PA where you can often find my wife Andrea and I meandering back roads, visiting farms and markets as well as some of the amazing food and drink establishments we’re lucky to have nearby. As passionate cooks and cocktail enthusiasts, we love to travel, especially to France and Austria, in search of culinary inspiration.
I travel anywhere my clients need me for photography and I'm central to the Philadelphia, New Jersey & New York region. I work on-location or in studio environments and have the creative resources available for a successful production.
