My journey as photographer started as a young man when I received my first camera, blah, blah, blah... Yeah, we've all heard that story, right! I'm not going to do that to you all. The text below is a little bit about me, who I am, what I do, and what I like. It's slightly sarcastic, and a bit cheeky. 


   Well, I'm a photographer. I bet you already guessed that. What you may not know is I'm also a musician, a husband, and dad to my two boys. I try to be an athlete, but struggle with that. I like beer. Not the cheap stuff, either. Yep, I'm a beer snob. I sell my photography for beer money - and more photo gear. Can you pay me in beer? Probably. I don't drink coffee. And my tastebuds are allergic to vegetables. I'm usually the guy in the group that doesn't say much. I'm always listening, learning. Not judging - unless you say something stupid. Then it's Game On! I grew up in the 80's - that's the "19"80's. I still love the music, especially the rock and roll from that era. I used to have hair - a lot of it. You should see our wedding pictures. I miss it. If I still had hair, I think I would do all sorts of crazy things with it. I should have enjoyed it more when i had it. Now i'm just the old, bald guy who wears hats. I've notice that ripped jeans are back in style again. Bon Jovi started it. Truth.

   If you've stopped by and looked around my page, you probably have noticed that I like to photograph Michigan. Well, I live here. It's my home, and there is so much to explore. I really don't get out there enough, so I try to make the most of it when I can. You'll also notice I have a gallery dedicated to Michigan State University - mostly the Spartan Tree. It's a personal project I've been working on for the last few years. My friends now refer to it as "my tree." I am a Spartan. Deal with it. I do. It builds character.

   I've also got another gallery dedicated to places outside Michigan. There are so many places on my bucket list I would love to visit. Anyway, that's enough about me. I hope you enjoy your tour around my little website. If you decide you would like to purchase an image, rest assured it will look amazing on your wall!
