I was born in Mariposa, California, but lived most of my life on the island of 'Oahu, Hawai'i. It is there where I discovered my love of surfing and the island's beauty that first sparked my love of photography.
It is my passion for photography that has really opened me up to the world. I love being able to see in my mind what I want in a photo, then be able to capture it and edit it, to make it come out better than I could have imagined.
Since moving from Hawai'i, I've been lucky enough to travel all over the United States. While traveling, I have gotten to experience and photograph different and interesting people and landscapes. I currently reside in the Yosemite National Park area.
