I was born and raised in Saratoga Springs, New York and graduated Penn State with a degree in Information Sciences and Technology.

My interest in photography began when I was about 11 years old and has been a constant source of enjoyment and relaxation for me over the years. I worked as a freelancer for the Associated Press in high school and sold my work at various venues and art shows around Saratoga growing up. Since graduating college, my full-time career has been at a local software company (currently serving as their Chief Software Innovation Officer), but I'm constantly looking to grow my skills as a photographer and expand my business in my spare time. I'm a self proclaimed tech geek, and in addition to the artistic nature of the craft, enjoy the technical and engineering aspects of cameras and lenses as well.

Other interests include woodworking, cycling, and cooking.
