I was raised in Minturn, Co, where i attended elementary, middle and high school. After graduating Battle Mountain High I headed East to attend the University Of Colorado, Boulder, where i studied communication and political science. From there I decided to travel, so how do i do that without any money, well the Army paid for it all of course. Spending four years traveling from Somalia to Saudi Arabia ect... I decided i had enough and came home to Colorado where i now reside in Eagle. I am married to a beautiful woman and we have four children who at times are normal, yet they can be 'weird','funny' and i meant that in a good way. I was brought into photography by my mentor and boss Dan Manzanares about five years ago. He gave me his first manual film camera, where i practiced and learned how not to shoot pictures, then came the digital era where i now enjoy photographing old historic buildings, cars and such. My career goal is to do photography for a living, but for now its a hobby and a passion, so ill keep shooting away until i die or become famous!
