I’ve been drawn to photography since I was a kid. There’s something exciting and permanent about freezing a moment in time. Catching just the right moment or expression takes practice. A candid smile, a staged portrait, a beautiful landscape, an inanimate object. These all offer their own unique set of challenges.

It wasn’t until a few years ago, when I put hands on my first DSLR camera that I decided to pursue it more seriously. Even when I’m not holding my camera, I’m constantly looking at the world around me, searching for interesting colors, shadows, and light.

Outside of photography, I enjoy hiking, camping, traveling, listening to personal finance podcasts, reading sci-fi / fantasy / self-improvement books, and spending time with my wife and two-year-old son.
