hi, it's a Pleasure to meet you
Born in San Diego, California, I've grown up in Virginia, where my parents have led in church leadership for 30+ years. I enjoy exploring new places and capturing candid moments or unique things along the way. I enjoy creative work that uses compelling visuals within one frame (or multiple frames culled together) to bring a story to life for a digital or other media goal.
I earned my Eagle Scout in 2014, the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts of America for service (presented to about 4% of Scouts earned in 2014). Toward that end, I continue to believe in that philosophy of being prepared to do a good turn daily. Through Scouting I've been involved in various leadership roles, including as a USA Level 1 Archery Instructor, during the summers of 2013-2017 while instructing outdoor programs and providing customer service to 10-18 year old young adults and groups. As a graduate from Regent University with a bachelors degree in communications, I had the opportunity to study in a small school environment at a communication school with over 478+ student film awards. Through my coursework, I had the opportunity to work with a few of those award-winning student productions; I was involved in several organizations and student leadership roles including some of the following: Regent University Student Alumni Ambassadors (VP + Executive Leadership), Photography Club (President + executive leadership), and CinemaScope (film club). I also contributed articles to Regent's student media, The Daily Runner & Humans of Regent and photography for Regent University and Regent Student Services social media content.
