His love of photography is rooted from growing up in a basement darkroom, developing and printing with his father, starting at the age of 6. In his spare time he enjoys skiing, boating and spending time with his wife and three children. He also dedicates time to owning a wedding and portrait photography business.

Favorite Quote: 

I've been asked if I think there will ever come a time when all people come together. I would like to think there will. All we can do is hope and dream and work toward that end. And that's what I've tried to do all my life. - Gordon Parks
