Where are you from, and what do you make?
I grew up in Connecticut and moved to Rhode Island after attending college here and earning a degree in Computer Science. I am a landscape photographer artist and the camera I most often have with me is my infrared converted 2012 Fuji X-Pro1.
How long have you been seriously pursuing art?
I have always had a camera since I was a kid, but I became serious about it when planning my first trip out of the country to Ireland. I wanted to make good pictures, so I took a series of film photography and darkroom printmaking classes at CCRI. I became so obsessed with the darkroom printing process that I became the lab monitor by default! Fast forward a few years to 2003 and a trip to New Zealand inspired me to pursue the latest digital photography technology and a Continuing Education certificate from RISD in 2017. For me, being a photographer artist is not just about using the camera as a tool to create a beautiful picture, it feels like I have developed a unique connection to the world through the camera that allows me to experience emotions that can hopefully be conveyed from my mind’s eye to the viewer's eye.
Tell us a joke.
