My journey with animals began as a child in the wilds of Maine, surrounded by balsam forests and freshwater lakes. I was often exploring the countryside and playing fetch at the lake with one of my family's loyal Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. As adult, my love affair with dogs grew through Annie, my intensely brave and loving Boston Terrier rescue, followed shortly after by her adopted brothers Murray and Ollie, who are just as full of life. They inspired me to use my passion for photography to tell their stories.
My life in photography has been a wild ride. In addition to the chaotic world of canines, I pursue projects and assignments dedicated to my intense love of the natural world and exploration. I'm a contributing photographer to National Geographic Image Collection and a photo graduate of Rochester Institute of Technology. When I’m not making photos or chasing after the pups, I enjoy spending time in the great outdoors and practicing my downward dogs.
