No, my Father did not give me a Camera when I was 12. He gave me a chainsaw and told me to cut firewood for the winter.   Despite this fact, I have all my limbs.  For reference, I started my photography interest while serving in the US Coast Guard using a 35mm film camera.  I shot enlisted shenanigans and Bearing Sea landscapes.   I put the camera down for awhile but, after a career in environmental emergency and hazardous waste management, I picked up the camera again and ended up here with a new passion and lots of vision.

I'm available to photograph anywhere in the world and welcome the opportunity to travel.  I enjoy portrait and commercial assignments and working with motivated creative teams as a photographer, lighting director, or grip. I have extensive experience working with production teams including Discovery Channel, Velocity Channel, Fox Television, and Hulu.
