After studying studio art and environmental science at the University of Vermont, I decided to venture to Lake Tahoe, California, in hopes of becoming a professional snowboarder (graduating during the most tense moments of the '08 recession made this sound like a great idea). A couple of years and countless injuries later, I found myself taking up an offer to photograph a few homes for a client I'd met while recuperating. What started by chance turned out to be the perfect mix of technical challenge and creative outlet, and I was immediately hooked with photographing architecture. I decided right there and then that it absolutely must be my career. Over the years I've been able to blend my interests in architecture and infrastructure together while working on some incredible projects: from hanging out of helicopters over Miami Beach to photographing homes in the wilds of Iceland, it's been one heck of a ride.
