Mod Abode was started out of a passion for three things; photography, architecture, and design. A photographer by trade for the past 13 years, I figured, what the heck--why not combine all my passions into one. Thus, Mod Abode was born! For as long as I can remember, I have loved design. I've always been particularly drawn to modern design. It has always been a favorite pastime to pick up the latest issue of Dwell Magazine and gawk over the stunning modern architecture and clean, minimalist interiors. And every store catalog I receive in the mail containing simple yet bold interior accessories, has a rather long shelf life in my home, because I love to study the featured rooms photographed so beautifully inside the issue. Since starting my photography business in 2006, I've had many opportunities to photograph our travels, our home, and lots and lots of happy moments in peoples' lives. After being a general contractor on the build of our own modern home in Indianapolis, Indiana, I gained an even stronger appreciation of modern craftsmanship and functional homes built with form in mind. So here you have it, a broad range of things that interest me, related to modern homes, for modern enthusiasts like yourself!
