About Me


In case you were wondering...


I was born & raised

in Wheeling, WV. 

I left for a little while to pursue dreams in New York City, Los Angeles and Philadelphia. But after a number of years living far from my family, the country roads called me back home. In 2017, I said goodbye to big city life and eagerly returned to the hills of wild and wonderful West Virginia. There's no place like home.



  • I have a rescue schnoodle named Teddy who used to model pet products for Free People. His "Blue Steel" is spot on.

  • My favorite movie is Amelie.

  • I went to film school at New York University and interned at Saturday Night Live way back in 1999. I had a huge crush on Will Ferrell who was a cast member then.

  • Some of my guilty pleasures are marshmallow Fluff, John Mayer and Coors Light.

  • When I was a kid we had dial up internet and AOL, and I got my first cell phone in college.

I photograph people, places and things of all sorts, but families and seniors are my favorite.

During family sessions I love to hang out and make pictures of the love that I witness. When I document a slice of your family's life, it''s a relaxed and fun time. In fact, you'll probably forget that I have my camera after about an hour.

I'm interested in doing fun and creative sessions for seniors who want to step outside of the box and be natural and free. The goal is to make images that tell the story of your life at this moment in time. What do you love, what is important to you? Let's tell the story of the real you.
