I had the privilege of displaying some of my images at the world famous West 4th court, a.k.a. "The Cage", during NBA All-Star Weekend back in February.

I joined NY Sunshine, Adam Lister, Justin Leonard, Kevin Couliau, and Bobbito Garcia as the artists whose work was featured.

In any given year things tend to move so fast that I seldom have an opportunity to pause and digest the minute nor the incredible moments as they happen. While I am always cognizant of what's going on, it's only in hindsight that I really have an opportunity to fully appreciate the road I've been traveling. In this final part of my personal look back at 2014 I share a behind the lens look into the FIBA Basketball World Cup, my adventures with Nike and the Elite Youth Basketball League as well as its elite camps including that of LeBron James, my role in an upcoming documentary film coming to a theater near you in 2015, and more.Read More
2014 was an incredible year and has given me plenty to be thankful for. For starters, I am entering 2015 in good health, which I never take for granted. 2014 has also been an incredible ride that has felt like a dream with all of the opportunities I’ve been afforded. I’ve logged over 20,000 miles in 2014 that have taken me across the country and over the Atlantic Ocean. I’ve probably clicked my shutter at least twice for every mile I’ve traveled, creating my shots from some of the world’s greatest stages of all levels. Here is a visual recap of just some of the highlights 2014 blessed me with.Read More
