About me

I’m a photographer based in Utah specializing in real estate and event photography – I also have a mild obsession with things that fly.
 
I was born and raised in Colorado where I developed a love for the mountains and everything outdoors. Growing up I worked for my parents property management and real estate firm where I was exposed to a rapidly changing market and developed a resolute work ethic. My Mother, also an interior designer and photographer, opened my eyes to the world of architecture, art, design and most of all–a love for the camera.
 
After studying business at the University of Colorado at Boulder, I moved to Aspen, Colorado in hopes of becoming a ski bum. Turns out, that part was easy. I spent the next five years skiing with photographers around the world and competing on the Freeride World Tour and similar events. (Here is a LINK if you are unfamiliar with this subculture of skiing.) Through this, I had the opportunity to travel and ski in dozens of countries; yet after a few too many injuries and my body starting to hurt, I found myself searching for new endeavors.
 
Conveniently, it was 2009 and the economy was bordering on collapse; so, I went to school. For me this was a little different, however. As a skier I had the opportunity to do a fair amount of helicopter skiing; so I turned my obvious obsession with helicopters into a career and went to flight school.
 
This is where things get a little interesting, so let’s fast forward through the next ten years: I got my CFII helicopter pilot certificates, partied, flew helicopters, lived in Europe and designed skis, partied some more, learned a new language, did backflips in a helicopter, traveled to 36 countries, rode a camel, flew helicopters again, married an awesome chick, taught people from all over the world how to fly UAVs, worked in parts of the world most people only see on the news, and picked up photography again. Wow, time flies when you’re having fun.
 
Throughout my pursuits I have admired many forms of art, but after exploring life on the other side of the lens as an action sports athlete, I have developed a love and appreciation for the subtleties expressed through photography. For me this has morphed into a passion and became a balance of curiosity and technical knowhow. Searching for the right photo that captures the moment is my challenge every time I take out the camera. In a world saturated with images, I hope to capture the ones that hold meaning for you.
