Welcome to my online gallery and blog. Thanks for stopping by.

I come from Dublin, Ireland, and am currently based in Chicago. I specialize in travel photography, cityscapes and portraiture and event photography. I love to capture fleeting harmonious moments and the beauty and magic of the world around me.  Things look pretty cool through a lens, and I love sharing that with people.  My work has been featured online and in print and has had over 14 million (recorded) views online.
