How I Got Started
Some photographers went to school for photography or knew early on that a life of art was their path. I did none of that. I actually always wanted to be a police officer. So I got a degree in criminology from the top criminal justice college in the country and joined the police force a few years later, in an attempt to live out what I thought was my destiny. But I was wrong. I never felt comfortable and I didn’t feel I was particularly good at the job. When I stumbled into photography, things just clicked (sorry for the pun). My mind lit up and I couldn’t get enough. Because of this, I found that what was really important for me was to be creative. And I found that in photography. So I started a business and 13 years later, I haven’t looked back once. I found my happy zone and I’m loving every minute of it.
On A Personal Level
I’m a dad of two girls and a boy. And my fiancé has a daughter, so you could say we’ve got a full boat. We love to hike, craft, go on adventures, camp in our trailer, and watch movies. It’s a busy life but so fulfilling.
Personally, I’m a serial hobbyist. I absolutely love learning new things and my hobbies keep me busy and sane. Everything from 3D printing to drone building to woodworking. I enjoy the challenges of learning a new skill, diving deep, and getting lost in a new topic.
