I was born and raised in North Brunswick, New Jersey. I loved art and being creative ever since I was young, whether it is was making music, writing, drawing or painting. However in a world of so many options I was constantly getting pulled into to new hobbies and sports so it was hard to find time to create. As a teen I bought my first DSLR which was a Nikon D40. I started shooting flowers, nature and basically anything I thought would be fun and interesting. In my last couple years of high school and beginning years of college I became more focus on trying to start a career, party and chasing girls. In my mid 20's I reconnected with photography and picked up where I left off. When a friend had hired me part time to shoot weddings and baptisms it really started to reignite my passion for photography. I immediately started reinvesting my earnings into my equipment for the best quality gear to produce the best quality image. I also started branching out into other forms of photography like macro, food, portraits, newborns and astrophotography. Since I already loved to travel it only made sense that my camera would come with me. It is easy to get wrapped up in the daily grind, so I wanted to show people what is out there and to not take it for granted. At the age of 31 I was told I needed open heart surgery for an Aortic Aneurysm. Fortunately I found a great Doctor that was able to fix it with a stent using new surgery techniques and a robotic arm that goes in through the groin. After four surgeries I am back in action, working and traveling again, making me appreciate this short amount of time we have on this earth even more than before. I hope I can inspire others to live life to the fullest!
