The 'Why'

Following your heart and doing what you love is what life is all about. I can't think of anything better than combining my love of adventure, people and photography to deliver beautiful images that truly capture your love and tell your story.
People & adventure inspire me.
I was born and raised in New York, always surrounded by family and a tight knit group of friends. Coming of age, I felt something was lacking and knew I needed to change my environment. I had never been outside of the country. Heck, I hadn't seen much of America until 2017.  

I began venturing out on my own in 2013 - first stop, Australia. Since then, I've made my way around the world multiple times, visiting places that at one point weren't even on my radar.
In 2014 I picked up a camera and never looked back.
I fell in love with adventure, people, sharing experiences and capturing it all.
I've had my most profound experiences wandering through ancient cities, finding friendship and comfort in people and places so foreign from anything that I ever knew. Local's willingness to share their experiences and keep me safe was so meaningful.
Traveling changed my life, because in doing so I found myself and found my creative outlet.
