I grew up in the drumlins of County Monaghan straddling the border of 2 Irelands. In 1994 I moved to the US and eventually became a naturalized American citizen. I now work both sides of the Atlantic. My passion for photography extends through to my work as a wildlife, nature and social justice advocate. My focus is on environmental and cultural stories, specifically mankind’s relationship with the natural world. From the plight of Syrian refugees to bison and cougar conservation in the Yellowstone, I have traveled solo all over the world to shoot my personal and commissioned projects. For 17 years home was San Francisco, California where I was heavily influenced by incredible peers and the strong tradition of documentary and landscape photography of the American west.

Focusing on exploring the world through a lens and sometimes with words I hope to broaden my own and my viewer’s understanding of it. My journey’s goal is to consistently improve upon I and we all live in this world. Thank you for taking the time out of your own journey to visit with mine.
