More about myself

[<--Selfie, Nickel & Nickel Winery]

Spending the last decade of my career photographing life’s most joyous celebrations was such an honor. But as my career in project management has become more demanding and I watch my family grow older, I have found a greater importance to be more present in the moment and enjoy as much time in this life, as I possibly can.

Though you'll see less portraiture content, moving forward I will continue to document my adventures in travel and share my appreciation for the natural world through nature essays.
