My first camera was a 110 Kodak beauty my grandparents gave me as a ten-year-old child. Shortly thereafter, I made a pinhole camera in school—around eleven years old that actually worked; I was hooked. I had my first photography class as a freshman in high school and later, wanting to finish my college degree in Marketing, fortune shined on me as I took my passion and used it as a photographer in the United States Air Force. Besides my mountain and road bicycling passion, I have a knack for capturing the outdoors on my smartphone, which I often share on Social Media. I spend a large portion of my free time riding my Specialized Stumpjumper mountain bike on the High Lakes trail in the lava fields surrounding my favorite mountain, McLoughlin. If you ever want to take a ride, send me an email and let me know you prefer Mountain or Road.
