I'm just a human being who wears many hats. As an avid amateur photographer, I enjoy exploring the art and science of capturing beautiful moments through my lens. When I'm not behind the camera, I'm working as an information security professional, utilizing my expertise to keep data safe and secure. Beyond that, I'm a nemophile who finds peace and serenity in the great outdoors, and a philomath who loves to learn and expand my knowledge. I reside in Montgomery Township and am always seeking new adventures to capture and share.
