I was born in Wyalusing, Pennsylvania, raised in Buffalo, New York and currently reside in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. 

I am a photographer who is self taught, initially with the digital platform that progressed to shooting more personal work on film.  I work with both medium and large formats and develop the negatives in my kitchen using a Jobo.  

My interests involve shooting portraits of strangers and found moments.  I also work as a freelance photojournalist.  

I have participated in the Magnum workshop with Chris Anderson, the Boreal Workshop with Canadian photographers and several portfolio reviews.  

My work has been published in books, magazines, newspapers and is held in private collections.
