Within the spaces I choose to photograph, which are often pretty specific, I wander a great deal. Being outside is important, as I’m often interested in disruptions to the natural landscape. Finding the unexpected - discarded jeans lying intertwined with garbage, trees, and plants; the way a raven’s wingspan seems to echo the crossed bars in a composition - is what keeps me looking for new things to make pictures from.

I’ve photographed the architecture of big box stores; wounded raptors that can only survive within cages; and the personal items left behind by transient homeless populations. My photographs are, in one sense, a critique of my subjects and the world that contains them. I'm interested in the irony that emerges from that critique and creates aesthetic objects out of things that aren’t inherently beautiful.

I was born and raised in Upstate New York and spent 13 years in New York City. I currently live in Lebanon, NH with my wife, two daughters, and dog Ruby.

I received an M.F.A. in Photography from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and a B.A. in English from New York University.

I've taught photography, the history of photography, studio art, design, and digital media in Higher Education for over 15 years.

I'm also a 46er.

This site is the sole responsibility of me. I completely designed and coded it, and all the photographs are mine (unless otherwise noted). It is maintained with Movable Type (Really. I started learning about CMS' in the early '00s and never looked back, or forward) and hosted at Pair.
