About

BORN AND RAISED IN THE LEHIGH VALLEY OF PENNSYLVANIA, MY WORK IS DEEPLY INFLUENCED BY THE BIKE RIDING COMMUNITY THAT I FOUND AS A TEENAGER. MY CONTINUED PASSION FOR BIKES INSPIRED AN APPRECIATION FOR TRAVEL, EXPLORATION, AND WILD PLACES. I DOCUMENT THE COMMUNITIES AND PLACES THAT I CONNECT WITH IN MY LIFE, AND TRY TO DO THEM JUSTICE IN PHOTOGRAPH. YEARS OF LIVING AND WORKING IN NEW YORK CITY GAVE ME AN INCOMPARABLE EDUCATION. THE EXPOSURE TO CULTURE AND CREATIVITY HEIGHTENED MY ARTISTIC SENSIBILITIES. TRAVEL LED ME TO THE VAST RUGGED LANDS OF THE WEST WHERE I SETTLED IN PORTLAND, OREGON. I ENJOY DOING EDITORIAL AND COMMERCIAL WORK, AS WELL AS MAKING ZINES AND DOING SHOWS.  I’VE DONE WORK WITH/FOR VICTORY JOURNAL, BICYCLING MAGAZINE, ALPINE BIKE PARKS, DIG BMX, BICYCLE FILM FESTIVAL, BROKEN AND COASTAL, UNDER ARMOUR, HENNESSEY, ESPN, SAN FRANCISCO MAG, THE RADAVIST, FBM BIKE CO, CHALLENGER BMX MAG, AND HAVE SHOWN WORK IN NYC, LA, SHANGHAI, LONDON, SANTA CRUZ AND BETHLEHEM.
