The perfect day starts with the sound of a coffee grinder.
Whole Foods grocery shopping is really just an excuse to buy craft beer/cider or a bold cab franc.
The more time you spend mountain biking/hiking during the week, the quicker you get your work done.
It’s okay when trucks only get 7.5 mpg – if they can drive up a wall.
I feel like I can only trust people who laugh.
My adventurous side of life started early - from rock climbing and hiking to backpacking the John Muir Trail two times (yes all the way through, is there another way?) once in the snow and once in the mosquitos.
I started my career working for my hometown newspaper (Tehachapi News) as a writer/photographer doing journalism and eventually working as the managing editor.
Recently I was honored to be selected as one of the TOP 100 Wedding Photographers in the World for 2020.
I have hosted workshops on photography, spoken at the wedding photography's biggest tradeshow teaching other photographers about my craft, taught as an adjunct professor at the college I graduated from (Brooks Institute of Photography)
And my work has won numerous awards and been featured nationally and internationally on TV, in Magazines, Newspapers and online, and I've been honored to photographer quite a few celebrities.
When not working, I spend time exploring with my wife Cheryl and daughter Abigail who are my favorite people in the entire world. We have a blast getting outside and trying to get lost in the mountains or along the coast, or in the vineyards of Napa.
