“To laugh often and much; 

to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends;

to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;

to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;

to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.

This is to have succeeded."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson




This is my lifelong pursuit in the art of photography.  I've had crazy experiences covering everything from celebrities and billionaires, to poor and the hurting, and many families from the start of an engagement to the death of a loved one.  I have found my meaning by just putting this God given talent to use.

I love traveling, getting my hands dirty, losing track of time in conversation, my morning cup of pour over coffee, and being in my own world while hiking or drowning in music.  

My mission is to show every person how a photograph grows in value every single day of its existence.
