About

My view on life and happiness is that if you aren’t doing something you enjoy, you aren’t doing anything worth doing. I have made it my life’s goal to ensure that every aspect of my life is lived for happiness over anything else. This goal led me to two great passions. One being music (I am currently a music teacher at a private school in the Ottawa Valley and also played professionally for over 11 years) and the second being photography.

Photography has become such a large part of my everyday life that I can’t help but see that perfect shot around every corner. It has changed the way I see the world, almost as if I’m looking at life through the biggest view finder you could imagine! It has caused me to see beauty where once I may not have…To see greatness in the miniscule…To see amazement in the drabbest of settings…

I started out taking photos for myself and not really thinking much of it other than realizing it was a relaxing way of spending my time. After much praise and urging from friends and family I began to share my work with the outside world. I have gone from enjoying the private aspect of photography to loving the element of sharing a moment or feeling with another individual. To find out that something I created was able to mean something to someone else was an astonishing yet wonderful feeling! Photography for me has now become a personal connection between myself, my subject matter and those who dig into the story each piece creates.

MY LIFE AS A PHOTOGRAPHER

Living in the Ottawa Valley has allowed me to enjoy and capture some pretty wonderful sights. The land is rich in diversity and vibrancy no matter the season. Without being able to travel as much as I would like, I can easily head out on day trips and each time come home with a plethora of great shots. Each becoming a trophy so to speak of the beauty of the area.
Take your time and enjoy sifting through my photos...hopefully you'll find something that speaks to you, as each photo has it's own story to tell.
