I grew up in sunny San Diego. Ever since I was a child I can remember looking at how light works. Moving the light closer and further from the wall or ceiling I watched shadows grow and change. Photography was in my blood I just didn’t know it yet.
In high school I took my first photography class and I was hooked. I would skip class or spend my entire lunch break in the dark room developing 10 rolls of film at a time printing on 2-3 enlargers at once. I like to get the most out of my limited time. Brooks Institute of Photography was a logical step in my life so in 2003 I packed my bags and moved to Santa Barbara to learn as much as I could about cameras, Photoshop, film, and lighting. It was an intense course that I worked 14 hours a day 7 days a week on my school projects. It was there that I learned my limits and pushed them to the breaking point.
In 2006 I graduated and moved back to San Diego. After living in Carlsbad and Vista for a couple years I finally relocated to North Park and I am here to stay. The people, the activity, the culture, they all inspire a creative mind and keep me reinventing my style and approach to every click of the shutter.
