I am an artist; this leads me to create breakthrough images with fun and ease. Photographing everyday people and showing their inner beauty is a blessing for me. I love images with impact that show beautiful and touching moments. My work is about feeling the moment and communicating that in a work of art. My true skill as a photographer is in connecting with my clients. I become a friend and an integral part in documenting all of your special moments from weddings to portraits. By being present with my subjects I am able to continually create new images that are unique and beautiful. My life as an artist is truly a dream for me and I am very passionate about it.
Beyond photography I am a father of two fabulous boys; Aidan and Lukas. I am also a competitive cyclist. I race mountain bikes and cyclocross. Being an artist, father and athlete is the focus of my life and I enjoy giving my all in every endeavor. I'm a ball of fun, inspirational energy and I enjoy sharing my passion and love with everyone I meet.
