Growing up on the campus of the Rochester Institute of Technology and surrounded by my father's success pioneering all manner of weird photographic imagery, it's only natural that I always had a camera of some odd shape or size to play with. I love chasing light and observing real life through the lens of a Leica, Rollei or Bolex. I would like to continue to develop opportunities to turn my natural curiosity into visual narratives that can affect people in meaningful ways.

Ten large scale prints from my Egypt photo documentary are displayed at Irwin's.
Built up a 16mm motion picture film outfit with Bolex cameras, Kern c-mount primes, and other sound and editing gear for producing a series of short movies during the winter of 2011/12. I have started writing a feature length film which I hope to produce in the next year or so.
Went to Cairo just after the Egyptian revolution broke out in February. I was shooting for an Egyptian media agency during massive demonstrations in Tahrir Square and interviews with several government officials.
2010 - 2011
Took a 6 month, 24,000 mile long road trip around North America and shot thousands of stills and more than 15 hours of digital video. I was shooting with Leica MPs and a Panasonic Lumix GH2. Many of the stills are posted here, and I'm currently editing a full length movie about the journey.
Photographed my second-ever wedding, though without the pressure of being the primary. It was all black and white film with available light, and I believe it offered an unexpected and candid perspective that they were very happy with.
2005 - 2011
Over the past seven years, I have bought and sold over $100,000 in Leica, Rollei & Bolex cameras, lenses and accessories on the second hand market. I have aquired pretty extensive knowledge of the history and gear from these brands and their surrounding marketplaces. While it was never the initial intent, I have managed to turn a small overall profit in the process of using a lot of great gear.
Created an entirely new image library for Hewlett-Packard, with more than 300 exclusive photographs that could be used by partner agencies and HP departments around the world. The project required a deep understanding of HP's business, the relevant messages and communication needs it had, as well as an understanding for how the images would get used across a wide variety of media. My leadership role included the photo strategy, art direction and guidelines, identifying and working closely with four world-class photographers, planning shoots in five different countries, and making the final selects for the image bank.

This photograph I took during a professional wrestling event at the Rochester War Memorial ran on the front page of the local newspaper. Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka diving off top rope onto his former manager, Captain Lou Albano. This was a big WWF drama at the time. I was probably using a Canon A1 at the time.
I was 13 years old when I produced this article on high speed photography for Boy's Life Magazine. It involved taking high-speed flash-synchronized polaroid photographs of my electric race cars jumping a ramp and popping balloons. I made $75 for it, and the admiration of two girls in my homeroom class.
1967 - 1985
Growing up, I was often the subject of some pretty interesting photographs taken by my father, as well as doing a little modeling for RIT photo students. I would also assist and accompany my dad on all sorts of interesting projects, be it setting up NASA surplus telescopes on the roof of RIT on cold winter nights, keeping watch over the wasp that would fly out of a box and trigger a synchronized flash, setting up the launch pad for rocket launches into the ceiling, or being stuck in a darkroom with him for hours on end. And then, there was the time I brought my cheerleader girlfriend, Sharie Platt, to his lab to do stroboscopic high jumps.
