   It’s strange - I find it difficult to write “about me.” however, i’m really talkative. I rarely express myself in writing. Looking from the outside, I’m a regular guy. I don’t look very artistic, I’m 6’2”, 240 lbs (cough). I am a life long athlete who plays ice hockey and officiates soccer. I’m a former Police Officer who loves to chase “bad guys." I am grumpy in the mornings, so my wife tells me. Must. Have. Coffee. My wife and I were married in 2006, on the beach in Mexico. I am the proud father of two, Jax and Kenzie.  

   There is something about me that you cannot see from the outside...I am a romantic.

   Yup, this chubby tough guy is a romantic. However, there is a problem…my wife is not romantic. My kids hate it. So how can I express it? That burning desire to experience and express love. 

   This is where you come in, you are on my site because you want someone to capture the things-people-events that you love. You are in luck because by default, I love you already. 

   Somewhere around 10 years ago, a good buddy of mine asked me to take pictures of his wedding. It was scary but also exciting. As someone who is romantic.. I found it fulfilling to capture their love through photography. Since then, I have captured hundreds of weddings, events, families, babies, and sports. 

   I am a artist at heart, I love to be creative with my photographs. However, I don’t create the beauty…that is your job. You are the art, I want to capture what you love, because I love it to.

DANA

I met Dana shortly after moving to Phoenix. The first thing I noticed was her bubbly personality. She is so much fun to be around. Well, unless you are grumpy... then you just want to smack her, haha. Joking aside, Dana has the biggest heart around and is one of my favorite people. 

Dana is a great photographer, but that isn't just why she is on my team. Nope, we are both better photographers when we are together. We are the true definition of a team. We may bicker like siblings sometimes, but that is  because we are constantly pushing each other to think and shoot differently.
