It all started in 2005 with a point & shoot camera that I had purchased for an out of state job training. I used this camera at a local park where I spent my free time. When I got back home I found myself purchasing my first digital DSLR. As I started out I mainly concentrated on the parks that are in my own backyard, but soon started to expand my travels to various regions of Ohio and out of state. My mild start has now developed into a true passion and obsession. When out in the field, I attempt to portray a story with my photography, capturing the pure essence of the moment. That is what I find most rewarding when I am able to capture that special and unique moment in time and share it with others. I have been fortunate to sell many of my images which is the biggest compliment that I could receive. I am a Group Coordinator for MPEG (Midwest Photographers Enthusiasts Group) which is based out of Brunswick Ohio in which I create group shoots for MPEG members. I have given several photography talks for local photography groups and as well as parks such as North Chagrin Reservation during their Nature Photography Weekend, and the Holden Arboretum. I am a self-taught nature and wildlife photographer that resides in Northeast Ohio.
