Learn More About Me
Cars have been a passion of mine before I could even say "Ferrari". I used to point out and identify makes and models of cars parked on the street as we passed by while my Mom drove me around town. Sometimes I still do this (much to the chagrin of my friends and girlfriend, who probably think I'm a huge nerd... My mom still thinks it’s cute, at least), except now it’s exotics and race cars, and on top of that I get to take photos of them that the owners can later purchase and hang in their garages and offices. Oh yeah, did I mention my job is seriously excellent?
Growing up, I used to have folks tell me, "Do what you love, and you'll never work another day in your life". I always thought they were exaggerating. I was very wrong. I've been working hard since the day I bought my first camera, knowing that was my end goal. When I finally figured out how to get paid for it, it was the ultimate "Eureka!" moment. I'm doing what I love, and even though I'm working the longest and hardest hours of my entire career, taking calls, answering e-mails day and night and working through my weekends, I can't get enough of it. I am living proof of the above statement.
I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in Communications Media, and The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with an Associate of Applied Science in Photography. I currently reside in the Pittsburgh Metro Area, but I travel a lot. I spend most of my days at race circuits around the east coast of the United States. I've worked with organizations such as: Porsche Club of America, BMW Car Club of America, Ferrari Club of America, Chin Track Days, Auto Palace, Strategic Wealth Partners, Three Balls Racing, Auto Interests, as well as a an array of private car owners at race tracks such as: PittRace, Watkins Glen, New Jersey Motorsport Park, Palmer, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Summit Point, National Corvette Museum, Lime Rock, and Mid-Ohio. I also do off track private car and portrait shoots. I would love to work with YOU too.
