ABOUT ME

 

At some point, everyone has a pivotal moment that defines—or redefines—the course of his or her life. Mine came when I took part in a photo documentary workshop in Costa Rica with Photographers Without Borders. Inspired by what I had learned and having seen first hand the power of photography to engage the world as we see it, I decided to dedicate myself to effecting change through images and their creation. From that point forward I knew that I wanted to make photography—understood in the broadest sense—my career.  

To expand my knowledge and skills I enrolled in the Environmental Visual Communications program where I added videography and documentary work to my skill set, as well as an understanding of the essential need for compelling storytelling to accompany beautiful imagery.

I have developed a versatile yet incisive style by continually experimenting with different types of photography across various genres, which I also bring to other forms of media. Telling a compelling story and bringing meaning to difficult subjects is at the root of all of my projects. As a former biologist, entomologist, commercial diver, boat builder, and research and development consultant, you definitely could say that I have a unique skill set. My experience and expertise help me in whatever role I assume: whether it be dedicated, passionate photographer, exacting documentarian, or proven field assistant.
