Born and raised in the greater San Francisco Bay Area I came to love photography and cinematography at a very young age. My mom handed me a point and shoot 35mm camera in 1994 and enrolled me in a local photography class at a community center where I grew up. This was the start of my love for photography. A few years down the road she gave me her 35mm SLR and from that moment on I could not put the camera down. During this same time I was an avid skateboarder and I would shoot friends and local skateboarders all of the time. At the same time I want to create skate video of my friends and was gifted a video camera. During my high school days I spent 4 years in the video production class while simultaneously continued my love for photography outside of school. During these years I discover that I wanted to spend my life working for myself and not for someone else.
Post high school I attended California State University of Fullerton. My first 3 years of college where spent as a Business Major until I discover the school offered a Creative Photography Degree. I immediately made the jump from Business to Fine Arts and finished collage studying Fine Art Photography.
Outside of photography and cinematography I am a father to one amazing son who is currently loving photography as well. I also love to eat, exercise, sports, reading, and spending time with loved ones. I have a passion to create and a desire to always push my self and my creativity.
