a photojournalist for the past 11 years has enabled me to shoot most anything
at any given time. This valuable experience has made very versatile in
artist, I do have specialties. They are weddings, portraiture and sports
photography. This is my true passion. I’ve had a camera in my hand
since I was 10 years old, a gift from my father, who was also my mentor.
He was a photographer in the Navy and though it was not his career as
an adult, he was a natural, it was his hobby and he was very good at it.
He taught me what to look for in front of and through the lens. His encouragement
of everything I ever attempted while growing up is what has led me this
I feel very
fortunate to have a career doing what I love, it is my driving force,
and it reflects in all of the work that I do.”
