For as long as I can remember, I have always had an innate need to create and express myself through art. As a child, the best present I ever received was a plastic art easel. It prompted me to spend hours practicing to be the next Bob Ross. Within a couple of years, I burned rolls and rolls of film as my best friend Dana modeled among the apple trees near our home. Then almost two decades later, I captured a grown-up Dana at her beachside wedding. Her mother said it was meant to be since I had photographed her all her life.
I refined my love of photography by earning my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Photography from Western Michigan University in 2002. And, I have learned more than I could have imagined working for commercial photographers, including 3 years as the in-house producer & stylist for Jim Powell Advertising Photography in Kalamazoo, MI.
I view my photography as more than just a way to make a living. My hope is that you are able to experience all the beauty in the world in a different way, that you are able to see it through my eyes.
