Hello & Thanks for taking the time to read about My Photography, Action Sports & Motion Picture Background.  

I'm a native to Los Angeles & the South Bay.  I moved to Virginia Beach, VA late in 2013 to be with My Wife & start a Family. My passion for Action Sports & Photography, began at a very young age and has only grown deeper ever since, as I am not only a Photographer, I'm an athlete as well. 

I started working as a Photographers Assistant at around Seven Teen years old, working & learning from some of LA's top Automotive, Portrait & Product Photographers along with having the opportunity to intern at Publications such as; Surfing Magazine & Decline Mountain Bike Magazine while I attended Jr College, worked in the field of Off-Road Racing, Bartending & racing downhill mountain bikes at a competitive level. 

After many injuries & always being intrigued by lighting & Cameras, I decided it was time I persue a career in Motion Picture, soon becaming a member of the I.A.T.S.E Local 80 Grip Union & later I.A.T.S.E Local 600, Union for Cinematographers & Still Photographers, where I had the opportunity to Learn from some of Hollywood's most talented Directors of Photography, Key Grips & Gaffers, work on Network Television Shows, Commercials, Features Films & Award wining Music Videos all while pursuing a career in Action Sports. 

Currently, I work for an Advertisement Agency, as an In-house Director of Photography, shooting project that range from; Television Commercials, Social Media content, Product Photography, Headshots, Catalog  &  Print Ads, along with managing Digital Media assets & Editing both Photo & Video.
