I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a bachelors degree in electrical engineering—and a minor in economics just for fun. After some time spent designing drawbridge electrical systems across the Southeast United States, I built up the nerve to follow the path that I had been unconsciously clearing for myself over the last few years.
Since even before college, I had shown interest and some ability in creative fields, particularly photography and music. But, given the vicissitudes of middle class life, I never considered art a viable career option and went with the sure-fire, fun-filled future engineering had laid out for me.
Now, I don’t exactly regret having taken that path. Designing bridges in Louisiana, Florida, South Carolina, and Virginia was an adventure. Working to deadlines, writing contracts, dealing with clients, and making things work in real life were all worthwhile experiences.
Though it was not entirely unfulfilling, I found something missing from this life. So I decided to pursue my interests more intensely.
Here you can find some select examples of my photography, from travel to landscapes, events to portraiture.
