I'm the man behind the camera and the pictures you've seen up to this point. But as much as I love being behind the camera, I've grown to love modeling in front of it as well. And as you can see in the image to the left, I'm all about taking pictures to the next level.

Outside photography, I have an understanding of the fine and digital arts - including my degree in Graphic Design. I'm a lover of food, traveling, friends, and adventure - so much in fact, I studied abroad in Italy for 4 months of a semester and had the time of my life.

Every photo you see on my site here was either taken or edited by myself. I love editing photos as much as I do taking them. I also believe that every picture is a masterpiece and not just another part of an Instagram or portfolio gallery. Rest assured, I treat any picture I take as if it were my child. I developed my passion in photography during my junior year of college, and since then have made it an integral part of my life.​


Honestly if I could travel and see people smile for a living, I'd be the happiest guy out there. So if there is any way I can help you out  - no matter the distance or difference between us - send me a message ASAP. Let's get started!​





Here are a few snaps from my personal life! Life's all about crossing new places and restaurants off the bucket list. Seeing the world and making memories as I go. Scroll down to see what goes on behind the camera!

I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.

I realized

there is no shame in being honest

there is no shame in being vulnerable

it's the beauty of being human.
