Thank you for your interest in my life’s passion!
I started my career journey as a professional hip hop dancer, where I continued dancing at Walt Disney World and later moved into event planning. It was event planning that I studied in a Florida college where I found a new passion, surfing. I quickly fell in love with a new sport and way of life and my life journey as a photographer began. The first time I picked up an SLR camera was on a surf journey through Costa Rica. I fell in love with the camera, photography and creating beautiful and powerful images. It was surf photography that started my career, followed by baseball, wrestling, football and basketball. I have always loved to observe people in following their passion and now I am able to document those memories. I have gone from sports to weddings to children to portraits and I love them all equally and differently. Life has so much to offer and every photograph has a different story. It would be hard for me to only select one style of photography that is my passion, so I have many and these photographs are just the start of my journey….
Your friend and photographer,
