It’s hard for me to write about myself. I’m always changing, learning, and forming new opinions on what I think is important and what isn’t.

This sounds cliche but I truly value the experiences in my life. The more I try to step out of my shoes and examine my own life, the more I learn how important those good memories are. And at the root of those memories are the people I share them with. 

Somewhere within all of that lies my obsession. I try to find a balance with photography that dictates how often I shoot. Sometimes I live moments through my eyes, But having a camera often helps me connect to a moment even deeper. So I usually take a camera with me every where I go.

This is my passion, and my full time job, but I'm not here for the money. It's really important to me that I put my heart and soul Into what im doing and I’ll never sacrifice that for anything. 

I have been published and won awards, but I dont care. This isn’t the satisfaction I strive for. My gratification comes from my art, and when you tell me you loved your pictures, I feel like I have purpose.

 

Aside for all this seriously deep talk, I love to laugh. I think everything is funny. I also love adventuring, and getting lost. Here are some pictures of me doing my thing.

 
 

Me in Iceland.

ahhh, Montana. Everywhere I go ends up being compared to this place, and never quite stacks up to my wonderfully long summer spent here a few years ago. I lived  that summer  hiking to my hearts content,  climbing mountains, and learning how to fly fish. More importantly, I discovered things about my own life that I would have never found elsewhere. I might not be in this wonderful career if it wasn't for this experience that I will never forget.

This picture is also a self portrait. 

 
 

Just for fun I put this little video up of some backflips, Everyone loves backflips right?

 
 

My Friend Jay took this of me without me knowing. This is such a perfect example of how I love to be lost in my surroundings.

This is as much as I'm willing to tell you about myself for now, because now its your turn.
