As a resident of the beautiful Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria in Virginia, it is easy to take my everyday surroundings for granted. Photographing and sharing my favorite images helps me to remember to appreciate all the things that make life in this city unique. I hope you will enjoy these images as much as I’ve enjoyed photographing them.

ASelf-Portraitbout Me

I am a musician and photographer living in Alexandria, VA, just south of Washington, DC. When I’m not practicing, performing, or writing music, I’m working on honing my photography and lighting skills. My most precious time, however, is spent with my family.

In addition to Images of Alexandria, I blog over on DCJazzPhotog, which is my long-term project to document the great jazz musicians living and working in Washington, DC.
