I was born in the Midwest. As a touring musician, fell in love with the Pacific northwest and decided to make it my home. When I stopped touring and started a family I picked up a camera for the first time with a different eye. Shooting my first child really began my love affair with the camera. I began to photograph anything and everything around me. Just about all of my free time was spent with a camera or a book about photography in my hand. Eventually I became the friend that you would call if you needed some shots done, and it just grew from there. Twelve years later I have photographed people from all walks of life, from celebrities to children, and I haven’t stopped. I try to pick up my camera every day and try something new.
