I never intended to be a photographer. For years, I spent all of my time studying and making music; and amidst all of the work, I always found myself stepping back to document those unforgettable experiences through the imagery in photography. After countless performances, a number of recorded albums, and thousands of photographs documenting it all, what started off as visual journaling became my passion.

Since then I've had the privilege of working on portraits of beautiful families, doing graphics and video for small and large companies, and creating my own fine art photography. I am grateful to spend my days working with amazing people in beautiful places as a freelance photographer specializing in lifestyle, landscape, and portraiture.

When I'm not working, I can be found at home in Ocean Beach, California with my beautiful wife, Korrie, and our small tabby cat, Finn.
