I am a self-taught, internationally published photographer from the Boston area. After graduating with a BA in English from the University of New Hampshire in 2003, my parents gifted me with my first digital camera to photograph bands. I photographed thousands of bands, concentrating on both live and promotional photos and occasionally for album covers). In 2009 I started shooting portraits of people, and ultimately decided to concentrate my focus on photographing models. My trademark of shooting elaborate scenes in abandoned buildings (when I find a location, I quite literally spends hours cleaning up and restoring it to what it may have looked like, paying attention to the smallest details such as placement of items in the room) eventually got me arrested in August 2014. I describe this particular event as "the best thing to ever happen to me", after national news outlets picked up the story. I currently travel the US, photographing people for various projects. Despite having a BA in English, I've always had quite a hard time expressing myself externally. If I had to explain myself in one sentence, it would read something like "An incredibly introverted, awkward wallflower". In 2011, my father passed away unexpectedly. My world during/after this event contributed to what is seen in my portfolio today. I had feelings and experiences that I would and could never build into words. I realized I had two choices: drown in my own darkness and succumb to depression or push on and fully submerge myself in telling an ongoing story of my internal struggles. I strive to produce photos that tell a story- that connect with the viewer on a personal level. I like to find locations that were abandoned before any sort of technological age, typically locations with relics left in them from 1980 and earlier (the older, the better). A feeling of "future- past". I ultimately strive to present my photos as readable images.
