Creating a beautiful photograph means capturing the right balance as a moment unfolds, and oftentimes the beauty is in the unintended in-between moments. Telling personal stories is an adventure that I love and each story is unexpectedly unique and precious.
My hope is that the photographs I create are worthy of being passed on from generation to generation. In this digital world, I believe in the importance of printed photographs and photo albums. They both have an ability to transport one back to special moments.

My focus on film and photography began at a very young age. In fact, my family and friends will tell you that they have rarely seen me without a camera. I started ReelMod Productions when I was in high school. In college, I studied film and worked my way through school as a member of the film crew for the football team. After graduation I was part of an Emmy-winning production team for NFL Films. The producers at NFL Films are some of the most creative storytellers in the industry, which influenced me to return to my roots in still Photography.
