About Me, Hire Me, and more...

Welcome, and thank you for visiting my photography!

I'm a nature photographer and memory recorder living in Silicon Valley, CA. Though trained as an electrical engineer at the University of Michigan, I'm never happier than when gawking at great view (ok, preferrably with any camera in hand). My love of the outdoors makes for frequent forays into the Californian wilds, where I delight in the stunning vistas of Yosemite National Park, Lake Tahoe, Big Sur, and the Pacific Coast - but it was in Vancouver, British Columbia that (with the help of a pod of orcas and my dad's old Canon AE-1) where I first learned to combine my love of nature with the fun of snapping pictures ... I've been hooked ever since.

Though it was the enticing beauty of the natural world that first drew me into photography, I've come to appreciate some of life's other treasures as well, and has since widened my aperture to include a passion for photographing memories. No longer content to merely capture the beauty of a breaking wave or piercing sky, I love to capture the moment when lives are joined and joys bestowed; moments that can be cherished and remembered in their fullest and most perfect light.

Thanks again for visiting the site! I hope you enjoy my photos and encourages you to visit again soon to catch the shots from my latest travels. If you see a photo you particularly love, please know that all photos posted on this site are available for sale. Also, I always take many more pictures than are actually posted here, so if you're looking for something in particular please feel free to ask. You can also find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Flickr.
