I’m an advertising and editorial photographer/director creating dynamic, engaging, and story-telling visuals for my clients on-location or in-studio. I’m based in Baltimore/Washington, DC and Atlanta. I was born in Cincinnati, froze in the snow-covered Buffalo, lived on the lakes of South Carolina, before graduating from Clemson University with a degree in Computer Science and moving to the Land of Pleasant Living (Baltimore).
When not creating visuals for my clients across the country, I can be found spending time with my wife and our yellow lab Annie. We foster labrador retrievers, restore/renovate our 113 year-old row home overlooking Patterson Park, crossfit, and cheering for our Clemson Tigers.
