Story
Tagline
I take photographs and help build brands
Introduction

Where most people took a right at the fork in the road following the crowd I took a left. In my professional career I have had experiences that few others have and it has taught me things few others know or understand. Communication, leadership, creativity, I have been an employee, a manager, and a business owner. Figuring out how to overcome challenges and make the most of what I have has become second nature to me. Any skill can be picked up but it's the ability, the desire, and the ambition to learn that sets me apart.

Stories are all around me. Products, places, people, services, experiences, the last ten years have given me a deep understanding of how to tell things in a way that makes people sit up and pay attention. I've made use of any tool I can, blogs, social media, print, you name it I've tried or used it. Can I increase your SEO, buff up your social media campaign, help create valuable content for your company? Yes I can. Can I help put together a powerful story to sell a product or service using both new and traditional media? Yes I can. In fact I've done all of this and more.

To me life is a story and I'm both living and telling it in the most interesting (and profitable) way I can.
