Outside of playing a bit with my father’s Canon AE-1, I had little photography experience growing up in Massachusetts. My high school did not have a photography program and it was during my freshman year at Syracuse University that I tried a photojournalism course. I was hooked. Photojournalism, I discovered, can be the perfect blend of storytelling and aesthetic. Our quest (no matter the assignment) continues to be to tell the story while creating a striking visual for the reader.

I have lived on four different continents, worked independently on multiple photo essays while abroad and continue to be an avid traveler. I care deeply about human rights and environmental issues and want to document more stories of this nature.

I’m a proud uncle of two, a soccer player/fan, a record collector, a documentary-watching fiend and a homebrewer. I am a part-time staff photographer at the Courant and though I rest my head in Hartford two nights a week, I actually reside in Queens, NY.
