When a photo just speaks to you, there is something about that moment that is truly magical. It’s mesmerizing. It sucks you in. And for that brief few seconds everything tends to slows down and you don’t want it to end.
That’s why I photography is such a huge part of my life.
Photography has been part of me since I was a kid. I got my first toy camera when I around 7 years old and I remember being super excited to get a new roll of film, shoot it, and get it developed and see how the photos turned out. And plus my father was always taking photos of my brothers and I, when we were growing up, so that only strengthened my love for photography. But it wasn’t until I borrowed my dad’s Pentax SLR, when I was 17, that I really really started to love it. I took a couple B&W Darkroom classes and I’ve never looked back.
In addition to getting my first camera when I was 7 years old, I also grew up as pretty geeky, nerdy kid. I was really into Star Wars, Star Trek and learning about planes, bridges and other cool technical stuff. I really enjoyed science and math, so much, that I got my degree in Aerospace Engineering. I worked in the industry, as a Systems Integrator/Engineer and Project Manager, for about 7 years and worked on some really cool stuff like jet engines and on the Space Station.
And now I make cool photos and videos that resonate with audiences around the world. And I love making new friends along the way, so don’t be shy. Contact me if you’d like to work together.
