Duration: I've been shooting professionally since 2005.
Staff: A growing group of collaborators.
Education: I graduated from The University of Pennsylvania in 2003 with a BA in environmental studies—a concentration in photography and minors in cultural anthropology and biology.
Cultural Influences: My mother and father, growing up as an only child in the woods of Pennsylvania, running with the dogs, the decline of the steel industry in the U.S., throwing the javelin, the 300-mile drive between Philadelphia and Titusville, Pennsylvania, hoarding, my wife Julianna, Andrew Wyeth, Edward Hopper, Francisco Goya, Rene Magritte, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn and Edward Weston.
Environment: "Well you're in your little room, and you're working on something good. But if it's really good, you're gonna need a bigger room. And when you're in the bigger room, you might not know what to do. You might have to think of how you got started in your little room." —The White Stripes
Philosophy: Create. My focus is on the narrative. I want to arouse the curiosity of the viewer—leaving them intrigued and wanting to know more.
