A Father in Solitude is Where he Finds Himself in Reflection

May 01, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

At the end of the day as we watch the sun close out the memories of our past We contemplate Where have we been? Where are we going? And what, can I do now? As we struggle to find a balance We are eager, only to accept The status quo Yet, only, for another day It’s time for a change Time to break out From the shadows we hide behind And embrace our struggle We remind ourselves That only we hold the key To unlock our true ability It’s time to achieve, more...than just…..satisfactory And in that moment That we realize as the new sun rises a brand new set of obstacles will emerge for us to overcome Victoriously Because one day It will all be gone

Low Light Vlogging Challenge - MGM Springfield

November 26, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Have you every challenged yourself to vlog at night in low light? Well I did just that with my good friend Burke Cullinane. We ventured downtown Springfield Massachusetts around the MGM casino, to see what we could create at night. Burke was shooting with the Canon C200 using the 85mm f1.8 prime lens, while I stuck with my Canon 6dmkii and the 50mm f1.8 lens. Overall this adventure was a blast and we captured some really cool cinematic sequences.

With a few hours to waste, I decided to spend my afternoon hitting the trails in my Jeep Wrangler and also taking some photos for my Instagram page. I had a blast in the woods, flying my drone and getting some awesome shots.

Breaking News, its winter and storm Avery is here! The news channels around here have been over hyping the storm, so I decided to mock them is a short weather spoof.

Giant LEGO Bricks and Haunted Mini Golf

November 06, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Every since Brayden saw the What's Inside episode where Lincoln went to the Lego headquarters, Brayden too wanted to check out the giant legos. We also went to Sonny's place in Somers CT to play some haunted mini golf. Sadly, they no longer have a hay ride or pumpkin picking field we were also looking forward too. Regardless, we still have a fun day!

November 04, 2018  •  Leave a Comment


Fall in New England is beautiful. This weekend I went exploring the Scantic River in Hampden Massachusetts after a heavy rain storm. I got some really cool drone shots as well of some and put together a little montage, inspired by Thornton W. Burgess, a man who loved Nature.

Reckless Abandon

March 04, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

A few years ago while scavenging my local salvage yard, I spotted this beauty awaiting it's fate. To some, this old Ford may just be another heep in the yard, but I recognized it as a lost treasure of American history. Sure, I may not have always thought how I do now, about the beauty of old iron relics that have been laid to rest in many salvage yards across the country, but finding this rusted and weathered truck got me thinking. I wondered about how many years I have been just been passing by history, and what I must have failed to appreciate when I was younger, and less knowing. Seeing this truck now, in its finial glory, waiting to be recycled into some inanimate object, I heard it calling to me, asking to be remembered. It was begging me, “Please Don’t Forget Me! Please don’t forget the work I have done and the foundations I helped to build”. It was a mere chance that I just happened to stumble across this truck, to which I was able to capture this picture, and forever immortalize this beauty in its final days.
