You know the poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost? Well, that poem pretty much summarizes how I feel about my professional life. For the longest time I was following the path that was expected, both for me and by me. After graduating third in my class from a private high school, I attended a small liberal arts college called Shepherd University in West Virginia (Go Rams!) where I majored in Biology and minored in Psychology. After graduating there it seemed natural at the time that my next step was medical school so I packed up and moved to Huntington, WV to attend Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine at Marshall University. After two discontented years of learning about the human body, I decided to jump ship, follow my heart, and pursue my passion for creating art. Long story short, I stumbled upon photography via a completely unconventional path and feel as though I truly indeed took the road less taken.
Every day that I shoot, I strive to capture the beauty of the world, as I see it, in my shots and I oftentimes find myself being swayed by the motto “every photo tells a story”. So, as you’re looking through my pictures, I hope that a few of the images will choose to share their story with you as they have with me.
