“The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” — Andy Warhol

About Me

I’m a father of 2 boys, a husband to an amazing woman, and a craftsman with a camera.

I use the word craftsman because, to be honest, I’ve never really identified with the term “artist”. Artists create art for no other reason than to create it. I create photographs that usually have some kind of purpose like documenting important milestones in life: engagements, weddings, and kiddos. It’s also the season of life that I’m in, so I have to say it’s quite natural. 

Our Story

I actually went to school for engineering (because I actually like math, weird!) and met my wife there. For 5 years of college we said maybe 6 words. To be specific, it was the first week of school. Then, for some reason, we never hung out! After graduation, we found out we lived in the same apartment complex and starting dating. Once I shared my love of the Randolph County Fair, she was hooked! A year later we were engaged, and the rest is history... in the making :-)

Right now my life is a crazy mix of playing trains with our two adorable boys, cooking blue apron, starbucks runs, and fixing up our old house. I wouldn’t change a thing. Family is the most important thing in my life, but I also squeeze in a million interests just to make sure I don't get any sleep!

I love animals (we have 2), coffee, amazing food spots, the outdoors (camping, hiking, skiing, mountain biking, etc.), woodworking, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream, binging netflix, and travel to just about anywhere.
