I am not a professional photographer, but I feel most comfortable with camera in hand looking for THAT shot. To put it simply, I just love to take beautiful photographs that move and inspire people, raise questions, or tell a story.Raised with one foot in Canada and the other in Italy, I have always had a passion for travel and the people, places and things encountered along the way. Although originally self-taught on film, I now operate a completely digital workflow. My work can be best described as observational photography and my general focus is on the ordinary things and serendipitous moments of everyday life that we often let slip by as time moves us forward.
