My passion for photography began when I was 17 years of age as I was studying graphic design in Atlanta. I changed course after getting a bargain on an old Ricoh Singlex II from my supervisor at RadioShack. I switched my studies to photography at a tech school in Charleston and became obsessed with the darkroom, headphones glued to my ears, blasting dark music to match. I was captivated by the work of Jerry Uelsmann, Cindy Sherman, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams, Robert Mapplethorpe and many more. I quickly began assisting other commercial and editorial photographers, learning more and more about the trade. I traveled all over North America with various shooters, absorbing invaluable knowledge, knowing one day I was to be behind the lens as they were. I am now based in Denver, CO shooting full time for various brands, agencies, and magazines and keep a camera in hand throughout my personal journey in life.
