I am a midwest-based designer, photographer, father, and pizza connosieur. From a young age I was inspired by Ansel Adams’ ethereal landscape work, which paved the direction I wanted to go as an artist. It took a lot of time and multiple detours along the way, but since 2015 I have been pursuing landscape, lifestyle, and commercial photography as aggressively as one can while being a new father and still holding down a full-time job. Since I picked up my first camera long ago, I felt a connection to something special. My goal is to portray atmosphere and emotion through my work, whether I am shooting locally in the midwest or traveling to epic locations around the world. Career and accolades aside, I am dedicated to answering questions that help other creatives learn their gear and find their way.
