I grew up in a small town in the Adirondacks in upstate, NY.
I started skateboarding in 1988 when I was 9. Started shooting photos when I was about 10, with my dad who was a hobbyist photographer. That was the beginning of what would bud into a lifelong passion for me.
After graduating from SUNY Adirondack, I went to the New England School of Photography in Boston. Graduated NESoP, yadda yadda yadda, 5 years after the yadda, I live in Los Angeles with my wife, son and daughter, and shoot people for a living. Life is pretty damn good.
