The summer started with an incredible journey to Tanzania, Africa for the Waterboys initiative in partnership with WorldServe and the NFL. Chris Long and Doug Pitt along with the NFL, have kicked off this promotional campaign on the quest for clean water in Africa. This film, produced by my friends Nadus Films, displays the engrossing landscape and the fascinating people of Tanzania. It is a culmination of energy from dozens of people in hope to impact millions of people. You'll be seeing this video along with my images on many major sports blogs, ESPN as well as social feeds around the world. https://vimeo.com/135062103

I also want to give a quick shout out to Izzy from +B&H Photo Video Pro Audio and Sara from Profoto USA for sponsoring our travels and making this amazing imagery happen!

If you haven't already, check out my "Tanaznia" blog post for the exclusive story and behind the scenes! http://bit.ly/1ILXff0

I've worked so hard for this and it hasn't even started. I've spent the past two years crafting a curriculum that is powerful enough to inspire photographers all over the world. And, finally I think I've developed that course. I'm proud to announce the following West Coast workshops, which are now open for reservations! We have some amazing sponsors on board and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you! These seats should go fast, so make sure you lock in your spot now.

Story
Tagline
An award-winning published photographer and filmmaker, specializing in fashion editorial, commercial and advertising photography.
Introduction
I listen to Lady Gaga and Lamb Of God. I love to blog.

I’ve always connected to people through language, art, film, music and 
creativity. I started performing music with 4 friends on stages and local clubs at the age of 16. By the age of 24, our act “(intheclear)” had grown to sell over 20,000 records and toured all across the nation. 

Over the course of that musical career, I not only honed the craft of recording and performing live, but also graphic design and video editing. By the time the band split in 2010, I had designed hundreds of flyers, edited many photos and cut up tons of video footage. People started to pay me to do the same for them and my creative career flourished. 

It wasn’t until December of 2010; I received my first DSLR camera as a gift. My love for photography blindsided me and began to snowball over everything in 
its path. I began shooting all in sight, from people and animals to beautiful 
landscapes; I wanted to capture it all. I’ve been blessed to know many creative people from all walks of life and have learned to mold and shape my vision of photography through their inspiration. 

And, many late nights on YouTube. 

Now, with a sharpened eye and field experience, I’ve recognized my natural ability and true passion in fashion, commercial and lifestyle photography. Using the knowledge I’ve gained, I am not only able to capture the vision, but also manipulate it into art, bigger than life.

My work has been published in Louisville Magazine, STORY Magazine, MOUR Magazine, The Courier Journal, The Voice Tribune, NFocus Magazine, Essere Magazine, Vedere Magazine, Dark Beauty Magazine and Vouge.It.

I have worked with NEXT Model Management, BMG Models, Sigal Models & Talent, Wings Model Management, COSMO Model & Talent Agency & Heyman Talent.

I shoot with both Canon and Nikon. I check Facebook every 2 minutes.
