I grew up in the drumlins of County Monaghan straddling the border of 2 Irelands. In 1994 I moved to the US when I won a green card in the Visa Lottery. I eventually became a naturalized American citizen a few weeks before Sept 11th. I've lived in many places in pursuit of stories but am currently based in Jackson, Wyoming in the heart of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem where I am a professional photographer, 'wannabe' writer and curious naturalist.
My passion for photography extends through to my work as a wildlife, nature and social justice advocate. My personal focus is on environmental and cultural stories, specifically mankind's relationship with the natural world. I have traveled solo a large portion of the world to shoot my personal and commissioned projects. I am acutely aware, motivated and sometimes wary of the power of the camera, my most important tool, to affect great change on society.
Thank you for taking the time out of your own journey to visit with mine.
Photography can change the world! So can love.
