I have been shooting since 2010. Photography started out as a hobby, which quickly grew into a passion, then an obsession. My images have been published in Outdoor Photographer magazine, Shutterbug magazine, and on the website of National Geographic. I also have images appearing in calendars. My images have made the Best Submissions Gallery for National Geographic's annual photography contest for the last two years, and I had two images as finalists in the 2016 USA Landscape Photographer of the Year contest. I hope my photos will inspire conservation efforts to protect and preserve the amazing beauty we have here in the US.
