      In 2013, I understood that my desire of taking photos full-time was stronger than anything else. I returned to school after a career of more than a decade as a petroleum geologist.

 My training at Loyalist College in Belleville in the photojournalism program was unique and the mentoring acquired there was one of the best. I then did an internship with Canadian Geographic Magazine to solidify my desire to be a visual storyteller. I have always been attracted to the art of photography and the power of what an image can convey in people; therefore, visual journalism helps me marry two things I profoundly care about: photography and human experiences.

I now work on a freelance basis for clients in the corporate, public, private or non-profit sectors. I currently live in Calgary, Alberta with my wife and son.
