Over the past decade, every time I picked up a camera, it was purely out of the love of capturing beautiful imagery. When others have asked me to photograph for them, it has always been an honor, whether it was year 1, year 8, or year 14.
Art has always run in my family, from my physician father who did woodworking, to my mother as a painter and ballroom dancer and my brother who is an incredible product designer. The camera has always been the method with which I am able to express my view of the world.
A graduate of the New York Institute of Photography (“NYIP”) in Professional Photography, I believe strongly in continual learning and immerse myself in daily photography courses. I have also mentored under fine art painters and commercial photographers and hold a B.S. in Management from the University of Akron.
My social media feeds are full of cars, planes and basically anything pretty and shiny. In 2022, out of over 150 entries, I won a first-place photography award – and had a second photo featured – from the Virginia Department of Aviation! I am also a proud member of the Professional Photographer’s of America (“PPA”) and obtained my Professional Photographer’s Certification in 2023.
