Were you born and raised in Boston? If not, what brought you here?

I was born and raised in Connecticut. I came to Boston for school and have stayed for my business and career.

Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I had always loved taking photographs: capturing the memories from trips, family events, or just life. In college, with my summer job money I decided to purchase my own camera. I fell in love with the opportunity to capture moments and special events in an individuals life. My company has since evolved and now offers both photography and videography services.

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Continue to grow not just physically but mentally and emotionally. You can always continue to learn something new and become a better and more well rounded individual.

How do you enjoy your free time?

Travel. I grew up in a family where we prioritized memories over tangible items and I have always stuck to that lifestyle. I also love to run and have run multiple major races.

I actually run a travel blog, called The Traveling Massholes, which was featured on Chronicle!
