I was a sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. I could fieldstrip an M-16 blindfolded and engage a target from 500 yards. But the military wasn’t my calling. After serving with some of the bravest people I’ve ever met, I traded my weapon for a camera — and learned about myself.

In the almost two decades that followed, I was reborn through photojournalism. The camera has since taken me around the world and into the lives of countless beautiful people. Today I shoot a healthy mixture of commercial, editorial, and personal work. We may all be on a fast train to somewhere, but I will never forget where I started.

Don’t be a stranger.

  1. Love, love your work and your website. My ex husband is also military. 17 yrs in the navy. I so respect you as a photographer and your years of service. Thank you for your contributions to this world.
    I met you today on the phone. I was the BoA rep that assisted you!
    Thank you for sharing this website with me. I have a feeling that it will long serve as an inspiration to me. I looked at all your images and will make my way through your blog as well.
    Bright Blessings,
    Jill
