My interest in photography began as a form of preservation of old barns and agriculture - stemming from being raised on a dairy farm in western New York and continuing to work in the agricultural field throughout the northeastern U.S. to this day. Since late 2008, my photography has evolved to include additional interest and creative outlets as I continue to learn and develop new photography skills and experiences.
