As someone who was born in Connecticut and into a medical career family, I knew 2 things: I would get a job NOT “in the family business” and probably not in CT. So, here I am working my dream job, photographing sports … in my home state. So, safe to say I’m not a fortune teller. Prior to ESPN I received my Bachelor’s in Communication minoring in visual media/photo journalism. Soon after I got a job at a photo studio in Wallingford where we mainly photographed high school seniors, children and families. Itook a leave of absence in 2014 to get my certificate in professional photography. I still have a small freelance business of my own where I primarily photograph newborns and weddings. I like to think that though I am not saving lives like my family members, I am capturing important life moments and allowing them to live on for generations to come.
