A Bit About Me

I'm a photographer and filmmaker who has spent the last 20 years in production. 


I've traveled all over the world to create content for brands and films, spanning from Brazil to India and back again. 


My love of visual art and storytelling led me early on in my career to filmmaking, where I have produced, directed, shot for mediums such as commercial corporate work (both national/global), nature-based content, as well as films for international audiences.

I'm often struck by each region’s natural beauty, so much so that I'll often book extra time to experience and document these regions.

Currently located in Southern California, I'm originally from Queens, NY. In my spare time you can find me spending time with my wife and son, in the ocean, hiking, camping, staring at a sunset, or on my Harley, always with camera.
