Illustrating through photography is my life's work. I create hand crafted, fine art photographs of family portraits, executive portraits and architectural photography. I was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio and graduated with a Fine Art Photography Degree at the University of Cincinnati. I mentored under several acclaimed photographers in NYC including Annie Leibovitz. My professional studio has been open since 2003 and now resides in Bell Works in Holmdel, NJ. I have lived with my wife and two children in Keyport, NJ since 2002.
