I'm a New England based photographer who's documenting small business and the people who have dedicated their lives and work day in and day out to produce the products we consume on a daily basis. 

It's my ever growing fascination and interest to learn about where and how the products we consume are made and who produces them. My entire life I've grown up around my families machine shop and I have a deep appreciation for those who have dedicated their lives to a particular trade and run their own small business.

It's my goal to learn about and photograph other small business and trades which play an essential role in our everyday lives but often don't get recognized for the work they do.
