At an early age I knew I was going to become an artist. I started out drawing like any other kid growing up and just never stopped. In high school I was introduced to my first darkroom and was immediately hooked. I started as a graphic designer in college, but was always drawn back to the darkroom. I switched my major to photography and here I am.
I loved to photograph people and eventually claimed fashion as my focus in photography. I worked in Seattle as a fashion photographer for a couple years. The problem was I loved all types of photography. Studio, product, food, portrait, and street photography gave me different avenues to explore. I moved to Michigan to try the automotive photography route. I then ended up building and running studios for ecommerce outdoor companies. This was where I finally started to see where I wanted my photography to be. I love the outdoors and always have since childhood. Mixing photography and nature seemed like the right fit.
Being an outdoor enthusiast and a photographer is the adventure I am still pursuing. This combination gave me the ability to create exciting work. More importantly it gave my photography a purpose. This was always something I searched for. I could inspire people to get out there and try new activities by sharing my work.
Always explore and protect where you play. I also like dogs and whiskey.
