I always knew I had a passion for the arts.
Born and raised in Central Massachusetts. I found my love for photography at age 16 when I bought my first camera. Growing up with a Grandfather who was a photographer, as well as a painter, sculptor, and handy man, made it easy to decide that I would make art into a career. Fashion and editorial photography became my main focus. I had hundreds of magazines that I refused to get rid of because of the spreads that were so stunning. I knew photography school was the next step into my career.
Immediately after high school I attended the Hallmark Institute of Photography where I was trained by some of the most amazing photographers such as David Turner, Gregory Heisler, Richard Barnes, Michael Zide, and so many others. There I was taught every aspect of photography, with some graphic design and business management.
Following Hallmark I moved to New York City where I interned for Hearst Corporations' Studio D assisting all of their photographers on still life and portrait shoots.
Currently, I am living in Worcester, MA doing what I love most, taking portraits of beautiful people.
