I am a New Jersey advertising, corporate and editorial photographer. I also teach beginner, intermediate and advanced photography workshops.
The work I create for my clients, and my personal work, is driven by a desire for connection and meaningful communication. I am fascinated by gesture and personal expression. I strive for mutual trust with all people to create relationships and meaningful images.
My journey as a photographer began in the military. I have also worked as a police officer and a high school teacher. I served in the Marine Corps and the Coast Guard honorably for 20 years. I was recognized as the most published and award winning photographer in Coast Guard history. I have been shooting professionally for 15 years. I have won several Military Photographer of the Year category awards. I was awarded the Advertising Photographers of America Grand Prize in 2008. My client list for national and local advertising campaigns and corporate and editorial assignments include: Atlantic Health, Overlook Medical Center, Thomas Jefferson Hospital, Exxon Mobil, Wounded Warrior Project, U.S. Lawns, Verizon, The Department of Defense, The Department of Homeland Security, Devil’s Purse Brewing Co., The College of New Jersey, Broadway House for Continuing Care, PARADE, AARP, NJ Monthly and Runners World. I volunteer with Flashes of Hope a non-profit organization dedicated to creating powerful, uplifting portraits of children fighting cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
I am a contributing photographer with Aurora Photos and a member of The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), American Photographic Artists (APA) and the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA).
I am a close drive to all of central New Jersey, New York City and Philadelphia.
