About Me

I'm a photographer and designer based between Boston, Massachusetts and Providence, Rhode Island. I have passion for great music, photography, film, being outdoors, and more. I'm a huge Boston sports fan, especially the Bruins and the Patriots. I love technology, and I'm always striving to learn more and keep up with the latest trends.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Technology & Media Studies and a minor in Business Management from Bridgewater State University in Bridgewater, MA, where I studied video and multimedia production, the impact of technology on human and mass communication, new media and the social media revolution, and online marketing.

In 2014, I founded Ten Mile Creative, a web development, design, and multimedia marketing company. We specialize in mobile-focused responsive web design, digital and print content design, website management, brand innovation and online marketing services for small to mid-sized businesses, organizations, and individuals.

I'm also a photographer that shoots both for fun and for hire. I love using my camera to capture and share some of the most unique stories and beautiful places our world has to offer. Fine art prints of most of my photos are available through my 500px Art Store. I'm also available for photo shoots in the Southern New England area.

This website primarily serves as my portfolio, a place for me to share my random thoughts, and my personal home on the web.

Photography

I've long been captivated by photography and loved looking at work from many of the great photographers, but I never had the equipment to do it myself. Two years ago, I finally decided to take the leap and purchased my first real photo camera, and I've since become absolutely fascinated by all aspects of photography. It's amazing how by capturing light just right, you're able to tell unique stories and share beautiful places through amazing images, and by changing that light or the way it's captured, you can completely change the feeling and story of that image.

I love shooting almost all types of photography. For fun, I really enjoy traveling to beautiful places to capture amazing natural landscapes, urban cityscapes and architecture, and shooting long exposures at night. For hire, I'm available for all different types of photo shoots, from portraits, family photos, events, and engagements, to products, food, and other promotional shoots. I also do digital photo retouching and old photo restoration. To learn more about my photography and photo services, check out the links below for my gallery, work portfolio, and print store.

Here's another photo from my library from last year. I was messing around with black and white and this one from Providence is one of my favorites. Downtown Providence, Rhode Island from South Water Street along the Providence River last May.

Today's photo is another I found from last summer. This one was taken a few minutes after sunset on the docks at East Greenwich Yacht Club in East Greenwich, RI. I love the colors of the sky in this shot, and with all the snow we got today, I thought it would be a good one to help everyone to forget about the snow. Hope you enjoy it!

Today's photo is finally something new: yesterday, during the snow storm, I went down to the island at the Turner reservoir to capture it during the snow. It's supposed to snow again tonight, so I might go out tomorrow to capture some more shots.
