I was born and raised in Canada's Niagara Region and currently reside in Toronto, Ontario. I have been a photographer for more than 30 years pursuing my passion and honing my image making skills. From my early years working in a camera store to being the vice president of my university photography club, I have always known that photography would play a major role in my life.

I have successfully shot event photography for the past decade capturing memorable moments of events and celebrations. With my degree in mechanical engineering coupled with my strong work experience, I have a true connection for all that is technical. This appreciation fosters in me a deep respect and understanding for the beauty of both the architectural and industrial worlds and the photographic opportunities that lie within them.

With my camera, my goal is to capture and bring out the best in architectural and industrial design.

Second to my love of great architecture and industry, is my passion for travel, 45 countries and counting. Through my lens, I yearn to soak in the visual elements of this great planet, creating images that not only inspire me, but allow me to share these moments with others. Whether it is people, cityscapes, landscapes, architecture or the animal world, my photography is core to my exploration and understanding of the wonderous world around us.

I strongly believe strongly in giving back and for many years I have enjoyed supporting local charities by donating my photography services for special events and annual reports.

I am a graduate of the Photography Institute and a proud member of the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC) and accredited in Architecture photography.

Today, I am a freelance photographer working on assignments that focus on Architecture, Industrial & Manufacturing and Landscapes. I leverage my passion for life to capture what I see. With my ability to visualize the image and my attention to the technical details during post-production, my intent is to create images that my clients will be proud to own and showcase. For me, it is all about delivering to my clients, excellent quality images in combination with a fabulous client experience.
