A decade ago I'd have no idea that one day I'd make a living with a camera. Back then my obsessions were politics and journalism.
But it was after a vacation to Scandinavia in 2006 that I at least realized that photography was fun. By day I plugged away on the news desk at Fox CT covering breaking news, and by night I cut my teeth photographing the basement punk shows in Hartford and New Haven. A tax return later, I bought my first Nikon SLR.
In late 2009 I started as a web producer at the Hartford Courant, and began picking up photography clients. After a few years I moved into writing about food and music for the Courant, getting the awesome chance to photograph both as well. 2012 was the year I started as a full time, self-employed photographer.
Every day is a reminder of just how unbelievably lucky I am to write about and photograph the things I'm passionate about.
My fiance` and I both work from home in the west end of Hartford along with the two cats that clog our Instagram and Twitter feeds. I love to cook, but have kind of have a moderate addiction to fast food and fried chicken. Don't tell anyone, okay?
