I am a native of North Carolina born in Pender County and attended school in Brunswick County. I have fond memories of living on Caswell Beach near the lighthouse that causes the feel of sand and the sound of the ocean always feel a bit like home. No matter where I lived in the world in all my travels I always had a set of seashells with me somewhere in my home, but now I have a few from other shores.

I began my love for photography while living and traveling abroad (Turkey, Thailand, Korea and Russia) while trying to capture the beauty of my experiences and new locales. Over time, I realized that the most beautiful subjects in any photograph always comes back to people. If a portrait could capture the character and essence of a child, a family, a person then it was worth was priceless.
