HEY FRIENDS!

I wanted to take a little bit of time here to share a little bit more about me personally!

1987, born in Pittsburgh PA. Moved a few times with my family as a child and ended up planting roots in beautiful Maryland in 2001.

 

In 2005 I drove 8 hours away to attend Cedarville University in Ohio where I started out studying Criminal Justice (I wanted to be in the Secret Service) but switched mid way through and majored in Graphic Design and Studio Art. The creative bug bit me.

I took a break from design shortly after college and went to work at Chick-fil-A corporate to help open up new restaurants all across the country. I helped open over 50 locations giving me the opportunity to see a lot of the country, I think I've been to just about every area and feel incredibly blessed to have seen as much as I have during those years. While I was traveling, I would use my iPhone5 to capture landscape photography...this is where is all began.

iPhone5 photography quickly turned into learning about video, day and night watching and learning as much as I could. Filmed my first wedding in 2014 (my cousin's, thanks Emily for trusting me to do that!) and I was hooked.

Over the course of the past 6 years I've been laser focused on getting better and better. I have a drive to be the best and nothing will stop me. For those that are into Enneagrams, I'm a 1.

My wife Carrie has been by my side for 7 years now, married for 4. We met online randomly on facebook where I reached out to her, had our first actual date in person at Disneyland and the rest is history. Carrie is an incredible woman and I can't imagine my life without her. I love her so much.

At the end of the day, I'm a simple guy. It doesn't take much to make me happy. I can enjoy the finer things in life but I can also be just as content on the couch watching Netflix documentaries and drinking a nice IPA.
