Me-1.jpg

Hello internet,

I am a travel and street photographer currently living in Northern Virginia. I shoot both digital and film, but generally prefer the latter - I love the tangibility of the medium and how it makes me slow down to consider every shot. I primarily shoot with Leica M cameras but I frequently enjoy shooting with a range of eBay finds, from the impractical to the barely functional. My style is simple and clean - I strive to minimize distractions in my images for a quiet and timeless aesthetic.

My travel companion (aka my wife) and I have a dog named Cooper that currently owns more sweaters than I do.

When I’m not taking photographs I can usually be found working at my desk at an architecture firm based in Washington, D.C., likely daydreaming about past travels or those to come.
