Born and raised in Upstate, New York, I moved to Seattle in 2009. Since then I’ve gradually found myself becoming a photographer of sorts. I started taking photos of some of my fellow musicians around downtown Seattle before moving further on to street photography. Fine art photography became an influence as well, and I began to experiment with combining the styles. Minimalism, film noir, surrealism and realism are all components in my approach to photography. I seek to capture an authentic moment and synthesize it with a sense of mystery, enough to suggest a story. I prefer dark, moody scenes, settings and people.
