My passion for photography started at a young age. In high school, I was promoted to chief artist and photographer for the newspaper, cutting my teeth covering chess club championships, volleyball games, etc.
After college, I was ready to see the world through the lens of my Canon. I joined the Navy, of all things, and after graduating from the esteemed US Navy Schools of Photography, I worked my craft aboard the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln for five years, then was chosen for a prestigious position with the White House Communications Agency in Washington, DC, where I served four more years, traveling twice overseas with the President. After my stint in Washington, I continued my career stateside—shooting creative campaigns for some of the top agencies in the Southwest.
I find I'm at my best when working within a natural, moving environment where I'm able to move in and around the subject to capture an image at the precise moment of inspiration.
I live in Avondale with my wife Kimberly and 7 wonderful children. I still serve as a Senior Chief in the Navy Reserve.
