Born and raised in Michigan, I grew up barefoot and shirtless exploring the Michigan shoreline. I was heavily influenced by action sports imagery as a kid and wanted nothing more than to be the person behind the camera documenting those wild experiences. After college I moved west to pursue my passion as an action sports and adventure lifestyle photographer. Since then, I have worked with some of the most recognizable brands and magazines in the industry and traveled to the far corners of the planet to create content and bring home stories that inspire. Since then my work has evolved outside of the action sports world but I am always in search for exciting and spontaneous moments. At the end of the day, story is king and I am driven to achieve the best results and authentically deliver amazing stories.
