about-me
A recent transplant from South Florida, I came to the Pacific Northwest in search of new adventures and challenges. While I do miss my family, friends, and playing in the swamps of the Everglades. I make up for it with trips to the Pacific coast on sunny days and hiking up any mountain path I come across.

If I could find a way to spend all my time outdoors I would. With my main passion being kayaking, I am a bit limited with both the seasons and the distance between me and the coast. If the Pacific wasn’t so damn cold, I would be enjoying a bit of surfing as well. I just tend to lose all feeling in my toes, and that’s no fun. So until I get a bit thicker skin, I will be content being inside a dry vessel or clamoring up and down the cliffs edge at low tide looking for that next shot.

So where am I going? Who knows. I’ve only recently started to define my vision. It’s taken over 15 years behind the camera to get this far and I feel as if I’ve only began to start to scratch the surface. Everyday I have to reassess who I am and why I am shooting. And hopefully, when the session’s done, I’ve captured something captivating not only for me, but you as well.

So I invite you to stick around and see where all this takes me. I am sure it’s going to be one hell of a ride…hell…it already has. And if you have some input on my shots or adventure blog, I am always more than happy to hear it!
