I was born in Northern California but grew up in Southern California. As a kid, my parents ran a string of photo labs in the area and abroad but I never picked up a camera. I guess the timing just wasn’t right.
As I grew up I developed a passion for music, joined in a couple of bands, did some tours and contributed to an album or two. After that had run its course I turned to something I knew I was good at…computers. The next twelve years of my life were spent as a software engineer working the nine-to-five grind with everyone else. Then, at the whim of a dear friend, I discovered yoga and started to feel the pool of the universe toward something different.
A year later I met an amazing woman who handed me a camera and said “Take a picture”. There was confusion and apprehension but when that shutter clicked everything became clear and I knew what needed to be done.
As an Eagle Scout I am an avid outdoorsman, conservationist and general lover of nature. There is beauty in this world everywhere I look. With a camera in my hand I try to capture that beauty every chance I get and share it with the world.
