I picked up my first camera in 2007 before visiting my mother in France. During that trip, I fell in love with the craft and knew this was what I would be doing for the rest of my life. Since that time, I have sought out like minded individuals that never settle for less and strive to become better in their career. Besides taking pictures, I enjoy hiking, going to comedy shows, attending music festivals, and being with my wife and 2 dogs. I’m still searching for the perfect cup of coffee which corresponds with my passion to travel. When I don’t have a camera in hand, I enjoy playing an occasional video game or watching a movie.
