Travel, Lifestyle, and Editorial Photographer:

I grew up in various prairie towns in Southern Saskatchewan and currently live in Boston, MA. I had a fascination with photography and film at an early age and knew that I was destined for a career in one or both of these fields. I graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design with a degree in Media Arts and developed a studio practice for seven years.

Eager for a new challenge, I moved to Asia for three years. In that time, I managed a ten-person video production unit in Daegu, South Korea and co-founded a non-profit that helped imprisoned photojournalists around the world. Needless to say, travel has been a huge part of my life.

For the last decade, I have devoted myself to the art and craft of photography. I'm a professional photographer who truly loves his job and everything that it has to offer. I appreciate the collaborative process, the places I travel, the people I meet and the creative challenges that each assignment brings. I'm attentive to my client's needs and go above and beyond their expectations.
