Photographer and diaper changing ninja. I once had a dream that I got rich and famous for being the guy that took all the cat photos on the internet.
I am a dad, husband, and photographer in that order. Those three things make me the happiest, and my favorite new hobby is to use my photography skills to document my daughter growing up and all the fun sweet moments she has with my wife. I cherish every minute with those two and although I have huge goals for success as a photographer, every time I make my wife or baby girl laugh I feel successful enough. Sometimes I feel like becoming a successful photographer is a crazy dream, but I remember I want my daughter to chase hers someday and it makes me not want to give up.
My wife and I are high school sweethearts who have been in love ever since we saw each other in the gym at Southgate Anderson High School. She followed me to Michigan State and then all the way to Georgia. No matter where I go or whatever crazy journey I’ve been on, I can always count on her being by my side. There’s nothing better than having that loyal sidekick who always believes in you and is just happy to be in your arms. We’ve been best friends since the day we met and luckily we haven't stopped being as silly as when we were kids. (We may or may not have taken our limo to burger king on our wedding day) I think a part of why I love photographing weddings so much is because I feel joy every time I see couples that just seem to love each other as we do.
I grew up in Detroit but I moved to the south as soon as I could (I FREAKIN LOVE IT HERE)
I have officially adopted the Falcons (I mean seriously I grew up a Lions fan, that was an easy trade) and the braves, but not sweet tea (gross) But I still love my Spartans (Izzo for President)
I once thought of trying to be a stand-up comedian, but I couldn’t come up with any jokes so I got back into photography instead.
I was a Science Teacher for 12 years and have been known to randomly get excited about explaining things. I may or may not have spent an entire road trip explaining to my wife about Clouds. Gotta love them beautiful Cumulus Nimbus.
