About Me

I was born in Auburn, NY and graduated from Wells College in Aurora, NY with a Bachelors degree in visual art and graphic design. I'm a commercial pilot and professional photographer concentrating in aerial photography both commercial and artistic. I've always looked at the ground in great awe ever since I started flying in 2008. My artistic photographs capture these moments of awe and mystery I experience when flying from above. The way the photos are taken and displayed convey a very special relationship between the ground and the sky that leave the viewer contemplating what the subject matter and medium really are. Untitled 1-30 depict Cayuga and Owasco lake in the winter of 2015.
