Introduction

Born 1969 in Washington D.C. and raised in Loudoun County, Virginia with 20 years of weekend visits to a cabin on the Cacapon River in West Virginia. From 1997 to 2015 I lived in Colorado, where for the last 8 years I provided art reproduction services to other artists in the region. Currently, my wife, daughter and I live in Ashburn, Virginia. I'm always asked for an "artist statement", so here it is, in one sentence: I make photographs of what I like to see and wish to remember!
My photography endeavors began at age 16, when my Mother gave me a Nikon camera and a roll of Tri-X for my birthday, and I've been pursuing it almost ever since. In the simplest of terms, I think of photography being like a treasure hunt; to just get out there and see what I can find. I'm drawn mostly to the natural landscape, seacoasts and historical architecture. I've been professionally represented by 3 galleries, published in hardcover book format and have had several images licensed through Williams Sonoma Home and Pottery Barn via Heritage Graphics International. Charitable donations of my work have been made to Legacy Land Trust, George Eastman House and others, including Children's Cancer & Blood Foundation with work auctioned at Sotheby's in New York. Aside from my wife and daughter, photography is my life! All of my images are artist-printed, with great pride and care, as pigment ink onto Hahnemuhle cotton rag paper, which has an archival rating exceeding 150 years.
