I have had a deep passion for photography ever since I was a little kid and I received my first digital camera. I ran all around my world 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: The Pacific Northwest, near Portland, Oregon to be precise. 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 and respect for the outdoors shared amongst 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 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 you.
