On an endless search to ride, or shoot, the perfect wave.

I was born and raised on Long Island, NY in a small quiet town nestled along Great South Bay on the south shore. And I'm happy to say I have recently moved back to NY to become a full time freelance photographer. I have been surfing for about 14 years, and started in photography in the spring of 2014. I am a proud graduate of the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD with a degree in Oceanography, and served 6 years on active duty before leaving the Navy.  I was first drawn to nature and landscape photography, but soon decided to try my hand at surf photography and quickly realized it was the perfect combination of two things I enjoyed most. Having always lived near the water, or even on a ship at sea, I have a deep fondness and respect for the ocean and nature. In my photos I attempts to capture the moments where the joy of surfing blends with the beauty of nature. Now my photography has greatly broadened to include surf, travel, lifestyle, landscape, and just about any other type of photography!
