I grew up in a family that exposed him to the Asian and European cultures. This exposure widened his worldview and acceptance of wide variety of ideas.
While living in Germany, I received his first camera, an Olympus OM-1 35mm film slr, for Christmas. I became the photographer for the high school yearbook, then collegiate yearbook at West Virginia University where I shot primarily sports, and graduated with a Bachelor degree in the Fine Arts.
After graduation, I moved to Florida where I learned the offset printing business industry, learning color photographic printing along and spending much of my spare time at the beaches. When my sister invited me to Los Angeles California, photography began to take on a larger part of my life.
In California I worked at ColorHouse in Burbank printing a variety of photographic media, and my interest in shooting my own photos began to come back, and I began shooting for commercial projects.
In the early 2001 I returned to Atlanta, and have been networking with local artists and businesses – establishing a defining style of photography and ideas.
Currently I shoot a variety of projects while traveling, hiking, photographing nature, textures, continuously learning to provide an edge and distinction to my clients’ image needs.
