Born and raised in Rochester, New York – home of Eastman Kodak. I got my first camera in high school and started taking pictures of everything. After graduation, I joined the United States Marine Corps and used photography to document my travels during the Iraq war. Post military, I found a renewed interest in photography, attending professional photography classes to hone my craft. In 2014, I moved to Rolla, Missouri, bringing my professional services and expertise.
I think my favorite part of being a photographer is helping everyday people feel better about themselves. We all have insecurities, especially when someone takes our picture, but in the same way a bad picture makes us feel insecure, a really great picture can brighten our day and give us a boost of confidence for months! That’s what I aim to do with each shot.
