Growing up, I never really knew what I wanted to do with my life, I just kind of went with the flow. I didn't have a career goal in mind until my Senior year of high school. I grew up as a skateboarder in a small town in Ohio. My friends and I would always hang out at our local street spots. We all started getting better at skating, so we wanted to film ourselves, so I begged my mom to buy me a digital camera so we could make skate videos. Although it wasn't the best camera, it got the job done. I attempted to take pictures with it, but they didn't turn out well at all. It wasn't until my Freshman year of high school when I met this older guy who came to be a very important person in my life. He's 73 years old, and he went to photography school in LA in the 70's. The first time I met him, I noticed he had a Nikon D3100, and I was curious, so I asked him to show me how to use it, and from then on, I was hooked! I got my first full time job after high school. I saved, and saved, and saved my money so I could purchase my very first camera, a Nikon D7100.

I'm very passionate, and very goal oriented. I've never really had anything handed to me, I've always had to work for what I want. So when I reach my goals and live my dreams, the rewards will be that much more fulfilling.

I really hope you enjoy my photographs.

Thank you for your support, it seriously means the world to me.
