I was born in Los Angeles and was fortunate enough to escape the freeways and traffic of Southern California to come and live in the beautiful state of Maine in 2005. I’ve always been drawn to photography and was even able to convince my parents to let me build a darkroom in our basement while growing up. I drifted away from making photographs for awhile during my college years but then my enthusiasm was rekindled when I was able to travel to New Zealand and Australia after my sophomore year. Being surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes excites me the most. When the digital camera revolution took off I really became passionate about photography as now I could add computers into the mix which means more shiny, electronic toys to buy!
Living in Maine is the best because of the 4 distinct seasons we have. Nothing ever stays the same for long and there are always new and interesting things to photograph for the landscape photographer.
