So far, I've lived in Hawaii, California, Washington, and Massachusetts. I grew up in a suburb just south of Seattle, but I moved to a town just south of the Canadian border for college. Bellingham, Washington. I loved it. But unfortunately, I couldn't have my dream job there, so I moved to Boston in 2008 where I've been ever since.
I've been photographing people for about 4 years. I love the interaction between photographer and subject. It's so much fun and gratifying to play and explore during a shoot. Because I'm not a fan of being in front of the camera, I try to do everything I can to make the experience fun and relaxing. I don't shoot out of a studio, rather, I go to you, or to a pre-arranged location in the Boston-Metro area for our shoots. This allows for a lot of spontaneity and for the subject to just be themselves.
In addition to photography, I also work in children's publishing full-time and as a part-time bookseller.
I got married in 2018, but it still feels like it was yesterday. I love my wife so much! And we're expecting our first - a baby boy due in June 2020.
