MY PHOTOGRAPHY WORK STEMS FROM A SENSE OF URGENCY I FEEL TO CAPTURE THE PEOPLE, ACTIONS AND PLACES THAT SURROUND ME.  IT PORTRAYS MY LIFESTYLE AS AN EXPLORER, RIDER, AND FRIEND, GRATEFUL FOR WHAT I HAVE.  FROM MY LIFELONG PASSION FOR BIKES AND THE APPRECIATION FOR NATURE AND TRAVEL IT HAS INSTILLED IN ME, I’M SHARING MY SLICE OF WHATS OUT THERE.  I FEEL LUCKY TO HAVE GROWN UP IN THE BMX TRAIL RIDING MECCA THAT IS THE LEHIGH VALLEY, PENNSYLVANIA, INSTILLING MY DESIRE TO DOCUMENT OUR SCENE, AND INTRODUCING ME TO MANY LIFELONG FRIENDS.  YEARS IN NYC TAUGHT ME THE INS AND OUTS OF PHOTOGRAPHY, AND CULTIVATED THE ARTIST IN ME.  A MOVE TO SOMEWHERE MORE NATURALLY ENGAGING WAS INEVITABLE, AND MY TRAVELS LEAD ME TO SANTA CRUZ, CALIFORNIA WITH MY PARTNER HANNAE.  THE MOUNTAINS, TRAILS, WAVES, AND FRIENDS HERE AND ALONG THE WAY HAVE BEEN INSPIRATIONAL, THANKS.  PRINTS OF MY WORK ARE AVAILABLE IN VARIOUS SIZES AND MY ZINES WILL GIVE YOU GLIMPSE INTO WHAT I’VE BEEN UP TO. MY WORK HAS  BEEN FEATURED BY DIG, ESPN, TLP, FOX, FBM, SUNDAY, T1, CARNE.  EMAIL ME TO INQUIRE ABOUT PRINTS, ZINES, OR WORK OPPORTUNITIES.
