What city/state are you from?
A small town in New Jersey called Verona.
Why did you come to RSMAS?
I came to Miami for my undergraduate degree in the 90’s and stayed for my master’s and Ph.D at RSMAS. I love the U and didn’t want to leave!
What job do you have currently?
I’m a visiting assistant professor in MBF here at RSMAS
What brought you to underwater photography?
I’ve always loved nature photography, so when I was spending lots of time underwater for my graduate degrees, it made sense to invest in a camera and start shooting.
What kind of camera(s) and lenses do you use?
I shoot currently with a canon 7D and several different lenses, but I actually started with a canon powershot point and shoot and have had many different cameras since.
Do you have a distinct style in your pictures?
I love to take portraits of unusual or rare fish behavior.
What advice would you give someone who is interested in underwater photography?
It’s never too late to start, and take your time. You can find something unique and beautiful even in seemingly mundane environments if you give it enough time.
