hi, it's a Pleasure to meet you 

Born in San Diego, California, I've enjoyed growing up in Virginia for most of my life, where both my parents are retired from 30+ years of pastoral church leadership.  I love the outdoors, exploring new places, and capturing images through the process of photography.  I enjoy work that utilizes

the process of storytelling and compelling photography or video visuals for a digital media or communication goal.

I earned my Eagle Scout in 2014, the highest achievement attainable in the Boy Scouts of America for service and leadership (presented to about 4% of Scouts earned in 2014).  Toward that end, I continue to believe in that philosophy of always being prepared and doing a good turn daily. Through scouting I've been involved in various leadership roles, including a USA Level 1 Archery Instructor, during the summers of 2013-2017 while providing excellent customer service and teaching outdoor skills to children and young adults ages 10-18.

As an alumnus 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+ national and international student film awards. Through my coursework, I had the opportunity to work with several of those award-winning student productions.  Additionally, I was involved in various organizations and student leadership roles including some of the following:  Regent University Enactus, 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 outlet, The Daily Runner & Humans of Regent and photography for social media content to Regent University and Regent Student Services.
