BIOGRAPHY: I'm a native of Missouri. Born in Kansas City. As a child I spent my younger years in Washington State. I come from a family of six with a rich background in art. Returning home to Missouri at the age of 14, my passion for photography was discovered upon using a brother's camera. Encouraged by my father to pursue a career in photography. I studied photography for two years at the local High School of Ruskin High. Upon graduating from High School, I continued my studies with a commercial photographer from Belton, Missouri shooting in the fields of commercial, aerial and weddings and portraiture.
During my off time as an assistant photographer my passion for nature grew spending time traveling to different areas of the United States. Traveling to Florida, Wyoming, Montana and Washington visiting national parks like Yellowstone National Park, Grand Tetons and the Olympic Forest of Washington. I taught myself about nature and the wildlife around me photographing the beautiful scenery of the United States. I continue to pursue my passion capturing beautiful landscapes and engaging creatures of all walks of life, large and small. With my enthusiasm for photography, I continue to explore photographing the wilderness and the beauty that is among us all.
I'm deeply inspired by the environment. Wildlife and nature have always been a big part of my life and continues to be what is most important.
Ultimately it is my wish that my life works be shared and to emerge as a collection of artistic expression and representation of the beauty that exist in the world. I believe that everyone needs a unique piece of art in their home. I provide many unique pieces of art that individuals will be sure to appeal to those who enjoy and love nature as I do. My photographs allow people to take a little of that beauty that has brought me so much joy home.
