let me explain...

My education and training was in filmmaking. However, while in university I fell in love with the darkroom and photography. Within two years of graduating, I found myself starting my own photography business. Making all the mistakes of an inexperienced entrepreneur. But with a lot of learning, business coaching, and other entrepreneurs advising me, I've been able to shoot, deliver, and get paid for many incredible projects. 

I've been fortunate to work with clients like Berkshire Hathaway, HCA, Microsoft, and dozens of smaller companies, entrepreneurs, and non-profits.

When I'm not shooting, I'm most likely traveling, hiking, kayaking, enjoying vegan food, or probably listening to Car Talk. I currently live just outside Nashville, TN with my beautiful wife, Michaela, and our sporadically adorable cat in a little log cabin in the woods.
