Somewhere around 2003 I bought my first DSLR where it stayed in "Auto" mode and took photographs with the 18-70mm kit lens. That camera and the allure of photography sort of fizzled out and took up room in a storage closet, only seeing the light of day for an annual camping/surfing trip or when I remembered I owned a nice DSLR. It wasn't until 2010 when the art/science of photography found me at a new start in life and that same DSLR and kit lens opened my eyes to what photography truly is and what it can do and I've been in manual mode collecting camera bodies and lenses ever since.
Flash forward to the summer of 2014 when I took my camera to Lake Quinault and captured my first images of the Milky Way and our night sky and discovered that there is this unbelievably beautiful and inspiring Universe above each and every one of us and here we are, on a website displaying works I never knew I had the talent or vision to create. Originally from the Midwest but following my calling to be near the ocean, I've lived on the West Coast since 2001.
When not operating a camera I work for an education data services company, make the best bourbon caramel corn you'll ever eat and watch Cosmos and The Big Lebowski on repeat.
