Life was good, simple. Making just enough to get by and growing playing live music. I fell in love with my roommate’s sister and best friends ex-girlfriend.

I enjoyed capturing memories, especially of landscapes and sports. I always had my camera on me, so I was kind of know by the girl who takes photos.

Now, six years later, I am running my own photography business. Read more>>

I went to school full time, worked full time, and squeezed in every internship or film related gig that I could. One thing I have never struggled with is a relentless work ethic. While still in school, I got a part-time video editing gig for a cosmetic company which turned into full-time videography, editing and eventually product photography, when the company came out with their own line. This was the beginning of my photo career. Read more>>
