Woodland Walk with Winston
December 2018

One of the things I love most about where we live in New Hampshire is the plethora of trails and outdoor spaces within a short distance from our home. This trail is maybe a ten minute drive from our house, and I could pretty easily bike here and then hike to a swimming hole if I wanted...

Bouldering at Willard Pond
September 2018

I used to be really into rock climbing, but over the past few years I've shied away from it more in favor of mountain biking and spending time doing outdoor activities where my dog can come along. For me climbing is as much about the people you climb with as the act of climbing itself...

Switzerland
August 2018

For more than a year, I had been trying to figure out an overseas vacation for John and I, as John had never traveled outside of North America, despite having traveled pretty extensively throughout the U...

Rainy Day Blues
May 2018

Our dog Winston wasn't allowed on the couch for the first year we had him. Dogs need structure and we liked clean furniture, so it worked. Of course, Winston realized the couch was a comfy place that smelled like mom and dad, so he would occasionally sneak on the couch when we weren't looking...

Girls on the Run Vermont Southern 5K
May 2018

Girls on the Run is a fantastic non-profit that empowers middle school girls through running, and it has programs based all over the world. Girls in the program train throughout the school year in order to be able to complete a 5k, and much of the program is run by volunteer coaches and coordinators...

Highlight Reel
January 2018

Here is a short one minute compilation of footage I shot while working on The Power of Place and other projects. Most of the footage was shot in New Hampshire, with additional clips from Rhode Island, Tennessee, and South Carolina...

Walpole Broduro
November 2017

One of my favorite local traditions among John's mountain biking buddies is the annual Broduro, a one day race consisting of timed stages going down local trails often built, maintained, and loved by the guys who organize the event...

Brodonkulous, the Claremont Broduro
October 2017

Claremont's 2017 Broduro somehow got the title "Brodonkulous" and took place on the trails at Arrowhead Recreation Area, Moody Park, and surrounding areas. As usual fun was had.

Equipment: Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 50mm f/1...

Claremont Broduro
September 2016

What do you get when you build a bunch of mountain biking trails, gather some riders together, and add a timing system for a friendly race between friends? The Broduro! Modeled after enduro style racing, where riders climb uphill on bikes and then race downhill repeatedly then add their timed downhill runs for a cumulative overall time that measures endurance, downhill race speed, and the ability to navigate varied terrain, the annual Broduro is simply a small scale enduro between friends...

Pump Track
May 2016

One of our friends has a pretty cool pump track in his yard, so I tagged along when John met up with his friends Phil (3x collegiate national downhill champion Phil Kmetz of Skills with Phil YouTube fame) and Brad to ride...

KHS Prom
May 2016

What do you do when a group of teenagers you've known for years ask to you take their pre-prom photos? You say "Yes!" of course. I met with Rachel, Pat, Ella, and Owen for a quick shoot in front of the local YMCA, where all of the teens met and became friends, and where I worked with them as part of the Y's Teen Leader Corps program...

Climbing at Marlow
June 2015

One of my favorite local climbing crags is Marlow, maybe a 25 minute drive from my house. It has a variety of climbs, top ropes are easy to set up, and the approach is pretty short, making it an ideal spot to go when you don't have a ton of time or are bringing people outdoor climbing for the first time...

The Power of Place
March 2015

The Power of Place is a short documentary film on The Northern Pass, a high voltage electric transmission line project that would cut through 180 miles of New Hampshire's landscape, including iconic areas of the White Mountain National Forest and Appalachian Trail, in order to supply southern New England with additional power from Canada...

American Alpine Club Dinner
March 2014

The American Alpine Club is a non-profit organization for alpinists and rock climbers that recognizes achievement in the sport and also promotes safety in alpine adventures. The northeast chapter of the AAC has annually hosted social events, climbing meet ups, and a fancy fundraising gala...

One Day in Vernon
February 2012

The small rural New England town of Vernon, Vermont is home to an aging nuclear power plant. Vermont Yankee, nestled on the banks of the Connecticut River, first opened its doors to power production in 1972 with its 40 year contract set to expire March 21, 2012...

New England Forestry Foundation
July 2011-April 2012

During my final year of grad school, I snagged a paid internship with the New England Forestry Foundation as a photographer. I originally was given a six month contract to photograph their forests and document the work that they do, but after a less than stellar fall foliage season, my contract was extended to allow me more time to capture images of nature in its beauty throughout the seasons...

Bike Trip Across America
June-September 2009

Spring of 2009 came around and I was frustrated with my job, my long term relationship was coming to end, and I felt like I needed a fresh start. So when one of my coworkers asked me to join her and a few others on a bike trip across the United States, I said "Sure, why not?" and signed myself up...

2006 NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships
March 2006

In college, I took photos for my school's Sports Information Office and when The College of New Jersey served as the host for the 2006 NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships, I got a handed a press pass and given a closer than front row seat...
