I was cultured in the arts from an early age. I spent many years in music but found myself being more drawn to the visual arts as he grew older. I grew up surrounded by Ansel Adams prints and National Geographic magazines. These prints continue to be inspiration for my work.
Originally from the Houston metropolitan area, I now live in Norman, Oklahoma. After finishing my undergraduate at the University of Oklahoma, I decided to turn my passion for photography into a career.
I began this journey into photography with 35mm film cameras. I would meticulously note each setting on the camera for every slide for references after the prints were made. Although the process was slow, it helped to develop my technical sense for photography. I still uses film for his own artwork but switched to digital to handle the workflow.
I originally strived to be a photojournalist, winning several national collegiate awards while working for the Oklahoma Daily & Oklahoma Watch. Currently I look to capture the best of weddings, newborns, portraits and events in OKC Metro.
