My passion for photography began my junior year in high school when I took my first black and white class. I fell in love with the art and science of photography and later received my photography degree from Southern Illinois University in the summer of 2007. Armed with a portfolio of images that I had created after 3 weeks of traveling through Scotland, I moved to Chicago and began to work in the commercial photography industry.
In the years that followed, I worked on many photo shoots in Chicago, Miami, Los Angeles, and Cincinnati, where I now live with my wife and two children. I continue to work as a photographer, on location or in studio, and always enjoy the opportunity to work with new art directors, stylists, and clients who collaborate with me as I continue to perfect my craft.
When I am not working on my photography, I enjoy creating bonsai trees with my friends at the Cincinnati Bonsai Society and studying Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu Karate at the Nishime Karate Dojo.
