I grew up surrounded by people best described as “salt of the earth.” As a kid in that kind of environment, you learn pretty quickly to be creative and resourceful. Simply put, I will do whatever it takes to get the shot, because I do not know another way. Authenticity is part of who I am at the core. I consider myself a story-teller and use my experience to create honest stories documenting real moments and true emotions. I love shooting in water up to my neck, swimming with sharks, and laying in the mud; but I also clean up pretty nice when I'm shooting in homes and offices! I'm up for anything with an amazing team of people working by my side. There is no better way to live! I am honored to have been selected by Archive Magazine as one of the 200 Best Ad Photographers worldwide for 2018/2019 and 2020/2021, and honored to have been selected for Communication Arts Advertising Annual 2019.
