A Work In Progress

Hello, I was born in Buffalo New York and raised in North Tonawanda NY near Niagara Falls. I had a great childhood consisting of baseball, BMX and video games, teenage years were spent on a skateboard, beginning of my 20's life shifted into college (still on a skateboard though). I started attending Buffalo State College taking writing and business courses, after two semesters started looking into new options, a few months later moved to Denver to attend the Art Institute of Colorado to study video and film production. I became interested in photography after our lighting teacher gave us an assignment to photograph three moods thru lighting. A month later i bought my first camera, a nikon FM10. In school i really liked the fact i could combine photography into my video and film studies. Post graduation i continued shooting while i moved about the country trying to figure things out. About nine years ago i ended up in New York City, started working in Television which gave me the funds to really start learning and experimenting with photography and filmmaking. I like to keep things simple even though some of my projects have taken years to finish. My biggest influences on art and life would be, Michael Spencer Jones, Robert Altman, Cindy Sherman, Nikola Tesla, Arthur C Clarke, Richard Ashcroft, Alien Workshop, Friends and Famliy.
