I grew up in Southern California were I spent most my time playing sports and enjoying the outdoors. I used my love of nature to win several youth photography contests in the Greater Los Angeles area. \nI moved to Seattle in high school where I played year' round baseball and worked hard to achieve the status of student athlete. I was fortunate to graduated from the University Of Washington with a degree in Economics and Communications while also playing semi-pro baseball. \nIn 2004, I moved back to California due to several acting and sports modeling job offers. Over the course of several years I modeled for top companies such as Nike, K-Swiss, Precor, Chevrolet, Carhartt, North Face, Honda, New Balance and more. I also worked on several well known TV shows and movies where I joined the Screen Actors Guild.\nAfter years of being in front of the camera I realized my true passion was to be behind the camera taking pictures. All my experiences together helped my passion for photography grow into a career that is always exciting and due to natures beauty, no two days are alike. Submitting a short film and winning the Boston Film Festival turned out to be a great encouragement to this ultimate goal. \nI am close to my family and consider them my greatest lifeline. \nThanks for visiting!
