I am a software architect by day and a professional Audio/Visual tech by night. I graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in 2006 with a dual major in Computer Science and Electronic Media, Arts and Communications.

I operate a professional wedding photography business with the goal of bringing affordable, quality photographic services to my community. I am a die hard Canon since buying my first Canon GL2 for my wedding videography days that started back in high school.

I currently shoot with a 5D Mark iii with battery grip, 24-70 F/2.8L, 17-40 F/4L, 70-200 F/2.8L IS II, 70-300 F/4 IS, Speedlite 600EX-RT, Speedlite 320EX, CP-E4 battery pack, Lumiquest Softbox and QuickBounce. I use a Manfrotto Nano light stand with Frio cold shoe and Bogen Manfrotto 3036 legs with 501HD head for my tripod. I also use a H4n for audio recording when using the 5D for video. I also use an xTi in reserve as a backup camera. I also operate a Pixma Pro-1 and primarily use Canon Pro Luster paper for my in-house prints.

I'm also a die hard Adobe fan and have worked with Master Collection since CS2 and several of the sub-collections for many versions before that. I'm fluent in almost every Adobe product, though my skills in Flash and Fireworks have aged for the last few years.

I have been working with computers since I was 3 and writing code and playing with cameras since I was 6 or 7. Technology, Photography, Videography, Sound, Lighting, 3D Animation and SCUBA Diving are all lifetime passions of mine.

I was the IT Director for GameCube Café and then Wiicafé.com and also planned and ran their multimedia coverage of E3 from 2003 to 2006. I also do occasional development consulting with American Digital Services.
