I have had a deep passion for photography ever since I was a small child and I received my first digital camera. I ran around my neighborhood photographing anything and everything from every possible angle. I did not know it at the time, but I was laying the groundwork for a lifetime love of photography.
I was born and raised in one of the most beautiful places on Earth: Portland, Oregon.
Oregon is an amazing place. There are endless evergreen forests, crystal clear rivers, mighty snow covered mountains, high deserts, and the Oregon Coast, all within a two hour drive of my home. There is a deep love for the outdoors shared among Oregonians; whether it be hiking, biking, camping, rafting, skiing, snow shoeing, fishing–we have it all here.
Being surrounded with such beauty has only fueled my passion for photography. I have a camera with me almost always. You never know what you are gonna encounter. I am always advancing my photographic education to better help produce the vision I see in my mind’s eye. The high-tech cameras of today are only half the battle, it is up to the artist to create something beautiful with the tools provided.
I am on a lifelong pursuit to capture and share the true beauty of the world around us.
To freeze a moment in time that would otherwise go unnoticed, and share that moment with anybody and everybody I possibly can.
