As the son of a carpenter and the grandson of an auto-body mechanic, the urge to create, build, tweak, and make better is instilled in my blood. It is from this hands-on DIY upbringing that I naturally fell in love with photography, when I first picked up a camera at the age of 13.
Professionally, I have spent the last decade and more working as a Director of Photography. I’ve had the privilege to work with ad agencies, such as Ogvily, KBS+, Draft FCB, GREY. I also work with editorial clients, such as The New York Times and The New Yorker. My work has taken me around the world (25+ countries) and has dropped me in every shooting condition imaginable.
While working as a DP the urge to create my own personal-work never ceased. I have continued to shoot my own projects, developing my voice and style along the way. My personal work has led to directing opportunities for brands such as ETSY, Red Wing Heritage, The New York City Ballet, and editorial clients such as The New Yorker. Thanks to multiple Vimeo Staff picks and the web exposure, my directing work has received millions of views.
To this day, my toolbox is still filled with my grandfather’s vintage Snap On wrenches he left me when he passed. More important than the tools, he and my father have passed down the value of hard work and importance of dedication. It is with this work ethic and perseverance I approach every project I have the privilege to work on.
