Growing up in a small southern town, the Marine Corps became my ticket to see the world. My call sign was “The Photographer” as I documented everything; cultural sites and heads of state to local people in remote villages. I was constantly learning, absorbing, and inspired by the beauty of life and captured every detail. As a photographer, I am constantly collecting memories, visual references, and experiences that fuel my concepts and ideas. From large scale productions to streamlined minimalist studio portraits, I love the complexity of a big idea and the refinement of simple elegance. It is my job to tell a story that evokes desire, that compels emotion and reveals the beautiful diversity of life.
