Being a musician since a young age and traveling in and with bands throughout most of my 20s was one of the most significant experiences of my life during that time. I photographed our silly antics, the beautiful scenery as the sun came up at 5am driving in the middle of nowhere, friends bands and anything that appealed to my eye. When I look back, I realized how important the photos were that they existed. So many things (some questionable) happened that we’d otherwise never think about again. From that, I learned the greatest parts of our lives need to be documented. This has ultimately led me to where I am today.

When I decided to pursue photography full-time, I was in the midst of studying for my degree in Graphic Design. I decided to utilize and incorporate original photography within specific assignments. Many of which involved photographs of friend’s and their families. Those very photographs led to having an amazing client base. Some of which, I still work with to this day. I’ve since shifted my business from graphic designer to photographer, and I wouldn’t change a thing.

Hope to meet you soon!
