After completing my Master’s in Communication, Digital Media and Storytelling, from Loyola University Chicago, I find myself settling down near my hometown in the Greater Cleveland/Akron area of Northeast Ohio. I am a photojournalist by nature and I am driven to tell stories. I encourage you to have a look at my portfolio to see the array of work I have created, from commercials and marketing videos to short documentaries.

I have a special interest in environmental and social issues. This is my main focus with my artistic talents. I tell stories with my still and motion pictures, and I will take on any story that needs to be told.
