I grew up in the California foothills with a camera slung around my neck. My family spent their summers vacationing in Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo and Cambria. By the time I completed High School, there was only one part of the world I wanted to live — San Luis Obispo! With camera in hand, I began school at Cal Poly graduating with a major in Sociology and minors in Graphic Arts/Photography, Education, Geography and Nutrition six years later.

I am living my dream. Not too many people can say that. I have the cutest wife ever. Michelle never stops smiling and she is simply a joy to wake up to each day. I am incredibly thankful for our happy little boy who spends way more time giggling than crying, a wife who is the love of my life and a job I look forward to each day. Marriage for me has been a dream come true and I am thrilled to be a part of each couple’s wedding day as they make the commitment to be together for the rest of their lives.

And to be a little less sappy — I also love wine, cooking, cyclingnews.com, figuring out near impossible lighting setups, single speed mountain bikes, chips and salsa, brie with crackers and caramelized onions, the perfect margarita with just a touch of salt, and knowing when I click the shutter that I captured a perfect moment.
