Photography began as a hobby of mine, about 8 years ago. I’m not sure when the switch happened, but when it did I found myself traveling for my 'real' work and often looking forward to the days I could escape business meetings to wander the streets of Israel, Morocco or China simply shooting photographs. I found myself happiest when I could share these beautiful landscapes or see faces of people around the world and capture their introspective moments; peering at their emotion through the lens of my camera.

In 2014, I decided to make the official switch from a conventional job to a professional photographer.  In my first year I have had multiple gallery showings, many online and print publications of my photographs and steadily worked as a tourism photographer in the New England area.  I currently spend all my free time learning, practicing and delighting in this beautiful art. I do hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoy taking them.
