Back in Action

It all started when my wife Marni saw this property online.


It had been on the market for awhile; a wonderful white elephant … 2 1/2 acres; beautful old barn, classic 1782 farm house, the signature towering maple, ancient apple trees; an overgrown meadow in Boxborough, MA. Long story short: we bought it and renovated it.

The Oliver Taylor House has, over the last 4 months, been transformed into a Montessori Children’s House; age 3 to 6. It was, and is, a huge project; transformative really. Call it a sabbatical for me.


Call it a dream come true for Marni. Bringing her vison to life has been amazing.  Last week we completed phase one; the renovation of the first floor into a classroom for young children. Welcome to the Taylor School.

What was in it for me you might ask?  Many things: a psychic vacation; hard, physical work that I love doing; working with Marni to create something of lasting value in the world; but the barn workshop would have been enough.

Now … back to Photography.
