About the Author


I picked up my first digital SLR in 2005 as a hobby. I've always been interested in photography as a way to document travel and life events, but I quickly became more interested in creating art that I love. Little did I know that this simple purchase would end up changing the way I see and interact with the world around me.

My photographic style attempts to show beautiful places in unique and fun ways. I'm inspired by strong subjects and I enjoy creating beautiful images that invoke emotion and intrigue with the viewer. Most importantly, I create images that I'm proud to hang on my wall and look at every day.
