I struggled writing this section the most. It's hard to summarize who I am in Today's sea of creators, photographers, explorers, and adventurers. I'm not an Award-winning photographer (yet), and I don't come with a long list of accolades from the high and mighty.

But here goes:

I first picked up a camera as an awkward middle schooler, complete with matted hair and a strong affinity for card Tricks; my entire idea was to build a youtube career on showing card Magic to strangers. I'm not kidding - the videos are still out there. 

I think it's important to mention that I'm absolutely Certain that awkward kid would be proud of how far I've come, and would be blown away by the life I've lived since then. Frankly, I'm not sure he'd believe it.

I DOn't think he'd believe me when I say that I've driven across the us three times.

I don't think he'd believe me when I say that I'm a brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Under one of the best american competitors of our time.

I don't think he'd believe me when I say i've Rock climbed all over the Country. 

 

I don't think he'd believe me when i say that i've been able to turn my passion for photography into a vessel through which i can see the world differently, meet new people, and tell stories worth sharing.

He DEFInitely wouldn't believe me when I say that I quit my first job out of college so I can, on September 8th, 2021, throw up the kickstand up on my 2008 Suzuki Vstrom 1000 and leave on a two year motorcycle trip around the world.

What I can say, for sure, is that modern me - the 25 year old guy writing this - is unbelievably excited to share my journey around the world with those living in it. I hope that my passion for capturing powerful images shines through, as does my desire to make every day a new adventure.
