Biography

Born and raised in the Capital District, I graduated from Siena College in 2007 with a Bachelors in History with a minor concentration in Philosophy.  I have spent the past five years working for Apple in an education and training capacity. 

 

During that time I was exposed to many creative challenges and amazing personalities.  I have created brag reels, printed announcements, training materials, syllabuses, databases, and web projects, all while working with cutting edge software and devices.

 

During this time I have interned for several local photographers and worked as second shooter on many large shoots. I have also done several large wedding and events under my own contracts.

 

I am currently enrolled in a Digital Media certificate program at Hudson Valley Community College.
