The intent of Lowcountry Yankee is to chronicle my life in South Carolina and beyond.  Through imagery and the written word, I hope to offer a unique viewpoint that is simultaneously introspective and externally observant.

I grew up in the northern Chicago suburb of Libertyville, Illinois.  I received a BA in Photography from Columbia College Chicago.  I moved to the Lowcountry in 2012.

My list of interests includes (but is not limited to): American history, Marlon Brando, forests, the ocean, sixties folk music, autumn, hand-written letters, Hawai'i, films, popular culture, transcendentalism, and the Chicago Bears.
