He loved to dive into the Atlantic Ocean with his friends and watch the local surfers as they graced the waves on the Jersey Shore. When he saw Bruce Brown's "The Endless Summer" he was inspired to start making his own surf pictures. He was gifted a Polaroid camera from his Grandmother and he took to the beach. Eventually, making his way to study Film/Photography and Media Arts at Temple University.
