Photography has been a big part my life since, I first pick up my dad's Canon 35 mm at 12 years old. I would study film and photography over the next eight years.

At 20, I join the marines, traveling the world and taking photos along the way.  So, after 35 years of services I decide to follow my lifelong dream to go to Brooks Institute to get my BFA in Photography in April of 2018. 

As I travel the world shooting, I enjoy meeting people, seeing places, working with models, designers.  I just got back from Paris Fashion Week. I also got the chance to shoot in Paris, and Cannes, France; Venice, Italy; Switzerland.
