I love my wife like crazy and our baby boy makes me explode with pride! I'm rarely without music and Pandora keeps my addiction strong. I love adventuring in God's creation. I live for game night. I die a little when stuck in traffic, but audiobooks keep me sane. Sometimes I wish Harry Potter was real. Then I imagine Voldemort in real life and promptly cancel that wish. I love traveling to new places but refresh my soul in Kauai, HI. I wind down with my pals, Hulu and Netflix. I dig improving my house with my in-laws and I love witnessing adults make ridiculous faces at my son simply to see him smile.
I love creating photographs of intimate moments. I still melt when a solar flare peeks around a backlit couple at sunset. It's not uncommon to catch a glimpse of me fighting back a tear during a wedding ceremony, and I'll deny it forever. After shooting a wedding, I often feel like best friends with the whole bridal party and wish I could go dance with them at the reception. I have a problem with wanting more camera gear, and cope by seeking out household items that simply resemble camera gear.
I was born and raised in Southern California. The beach was my summer home. I loved late night bonfires, rocked out on the drums, ran my heart out on the soccer field, and named my dog Baxter. I came to the Bay Area to attend UCBerkeley and stayed for the two loves of my life— my wife and my photography.
