I got my start in photography back in 2005. It all started with a point & shoot camera that I had purchased for some out of state job training. I used this point & shoot camera at a local park where I spend my time after work. When I got back home I found myself purchasing my first digital DSLR. As I started out I mainly concentrated on the parks that are in my own backyard, but soon started to expand my travels to various regions of Ohio and out of state. My mild start has now developed into a true passion and obsession. When out in the field, I attempt to portray a story with my photography, capturing the pure essence of the moment. That is what I find most rewarding of is when I am able to capture that special and unique moment in time and share it with others. I have been fortunate to sell many of my images which is the biggest compliment that I could receive.
I am a Group Coordinator for NPEG (National Photographers Enthusiasts Group) which is based out of Brunswick Ohio in which I create group shoots for NPEG members. I have given several photography talks for local photography groups and as well as parks such as North Chagrin Reservation during their Nature Photography Weekend. As well as the graduating class of Ohio Certified Naturalists at the Holden Arboretum and their Fireside Lecture Series. I am a self-taught nature and wildlife photographer that resides in Northeast Ohio and specializes in avian photography.
My photos are available for purchase as prints and if you are interested in a speaking engagement please contact me.
