It all started when I was about ten years old and my parents let me spend my hard-earned allowance on a garage-sale, $2 Polaroid camera. I loved that camera and took pictures of everything. I knew it was my calling, kept at it, and in 2001, an advertising agency saw my work in a coffee shop and offered me a my first commercial job. I have been on fire for photography all my life and am looking forward to continuing here.
I tend to shoot in a more non-traditional, photo-journalistic style, with an emphasis on the random moments that make life more memorable and fun. I believe that the heart and soul of my photography comes from capturing the spirit and emotion of the occasions, and not just poses and backdrops. I am dedicated to my God, my family, and my photography, and I hope this is evident in every one of my images.
