hi, It's a pleasure to meet you
Born in San Diego, I've grown up and am local to Virginia, where our family has led in church leadership. Early on, I remember someone giving me a camera which led to my enthusiasm about using it to capture and document my observations which in some way has continued to developed my passion within photography and visual storytelling.
From my past experience working in e-commerce and customer service, I also enjoy working with other people to create value, meaningful experiences, and design/create work that is visually appealing + truthfully portrayed.
I earned my Eagle Scout in 2014, the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts of America for service & leadership which was presented to about 4% of Scouts earned in 2014. I believe in that philosophy of being prepared and doing a good turn daily. Through Scouting, I was involved in various leadership roles, instructed outdoor programs including archery as a USA Level 1 Archery instructor, and performed customer service duties for individuals. As a graduate from Regent University with a bachelors degree in communications, I had the opportunity to study and, through coursework, work with several award-winning student filmmakers & crew on several productions. I was involved in several on campus executive student leadership roles including: Regent University Student Alumni Ambassadors, Photography Club, and CinemaScope and contributed some to The Daily Runner/Humans of Regent and photography for Regent University Marketing.
