This series is from an ongoing project (submitted in 2018 and 2020 as well) with new photos from the last 2 years. My main long-term body of work is a collection of family photos from half-a-dozen families I photograph once or twice a year doing what they do. I'm trying to capture moments of relationships, portraits of young people, and the ongoing growth of the individuals as time moves on.

I graduated from Bucknell University with a major in English and a minor in Chemistry. I worked at Barnes & Noble for four years and currently pay the bills as a nuclear medicine technologist. The rest of my time is devoted to my various cats. My ultimate dream would be to go to Mars, but in the meantime I do this photography thing.
