Many years ago, I started my career as a structural steel arc welder and all I wanted to do was climb higher and higher up the structure into the air. I loved hanging by a rope and welding away under my hood. It was peaceful. That's how I paid for college. Then, I spent the next 15 years in the Information Technology field, which gave me many opportunities to travel extensively. While on business trips to Europe, Asia, and all over the United States, I brought a camera with me and never put it down. It was during this time in my life that I fell completely in love with photography. This experience and passion is what I bring to every photo shoot.
Living in the beautiful Santa Clarita valley, just outside of Los Angeles, allows me to work as a freelance photographer, web designer, technology consultant, and still return home to spend time with my family. I enjoy taking beautiful photographs of people, family activities, cultures, food, and this beautiful planet we live on. I'm always striving to push the envelope and experiment with new ideas so I can continually grow as a photographer. I am constantly looking for new opportunities to improve my skills, learn new things, and take on new challenges.
I believe in keeping things simple, relaxing, and fun. Whether behind the lens or behind the computer, I'm known for being a perfectionist with a strong work ethic. So leave your worries behind and let's collaborate and create beautiful photos you'll be proud to share with your friends and family.
