Throughout high school and college, skateboarding was my first priority. Several sponsorships led me to documenting myself skating and learning how to use a 35mm camera. Shooting action with flashes was a difficult task, but it was during this time I found a love for the creative process. Eventually I changed my focus in school to photography and moved my concentration to capturing fast-paced, sports-action images. All this led to shooting advertising campaigns and brand catalogs for close to 10 years now; for clients including Gatorade, Target, Adidas, New Balance, Fitbit, Nike, Fila, Gold’s Gym, FedEx, and JCPenney, among others
