I was born and raised in New York City, and started writing and taking photos at the age of eight. In 1996, I designed and published my very own website. I have been employed as a writer, photographer, and website designer in various capacities since age 18.
In July 1998, I became a certified Emergency Medical Technician, then in 2001, became a certified Firefighter. I served 18 years in the fire service, pursuing a career in the fire service for 18 years. I later left the fire and EMS service in 2016, shortly after being promoted to the rank of Fire & EMS Lieutenant, to pursue a lifelong dream of being a self-employed writer and photographer.
I am currently a contributing photographer for Canva.com, and Getty Images. My writing focuses on unique life experiences, while my photography focuses on abandoned locations, and adventure photography.
