Born and raised in New Hampshire, I have called the seacoast area my home since 1997. I currently live in Stratham, NH with my wife, three children, and two very excitable labs. In addition to photography, I have been a teacher and school official in and around Exeter for the better part of 20 years. I have been serious about photography since 2000, first taking pictures of my children, then developing a passion for landscape, architecture, and portrait photography. Most weekend mornings I can be found somewhere between Plum Island, MA and Portland, ME trying to capture beautiful moments along the New England coast 1/100th of second at a time. My motivation right now is about being present and making beautiful images. That is what being a photographer means to me. I'm always grateful and flattered when someone buys an image of mine, hires me for a commercial shoot, or asks me to capture their portrait, but regardless of whether my images are bought or my services are hired, it is that moment when I hit the shutter that I find the most satisfaction.
