My father is an engineer and a man of few words, I grew up watching him approach projects quietly, methodically as he created and fixed things with his own hands. I was immediately drawn to photography the moment I picked up a camera in high school.  I found that photography was the perfect medium that allowed me to best capture and communicate the thoughts and ideas that I had in my head. Coupling that with what I had seen and admired from my dad’s profession- pursuing photography as a career was something that seemed clear to me. In 2009, I worked as the assistant photo editor for my college newspaper and also assisted a few friends who were wedding photographers. In 2012, I made the decision to become a full-time photographer, and haven't looked back since. Photography has allowed me to witness some really incredible moments in people's lives. I feel blessed to be able to do what I do and grateful to be able to document moments whether courageous, daring, or joyful for people I'd have never had the opportunity to meet otherwise. Living in New York City has allowed me to realize that there are just so many people with stories that have yet to be told. I'm now based in NYC and available worldwide, and primarily focus on photographing weddings, lifestyle portraits, as well as commercial photography.
