I am a San Diego native, born in a small, north county town called Fallbrook. I am the only child of high School sweethearts, I eventually grew up and married my high school sweetheart and have two children.

I first became interested in taking pictures because my grandfather was quite the photo hobbyist. He taught me not just how to press the shutter, but to really take my time, make sure everything was just right, so that the moment captured was special and meaningful. Once the camera became to hard for my grandfather to hold, he gave it to me, I was 18.
