I enjoy trail running, hiking, traveling and photography, which give me no shortage of subjects to shoot. Based in Richmond, VA I find myself in the Blue Ridge Mountains quite often but thoroughly enjoy shooting in my local city as well. You will typically find me somewhere on the southern portion of the Appalachian Trail, whether its in VA or below with hopes of hiking further north in the near future.
Striking the right balance between hiking and photography gear has become very important to me, as I like traveling light and fast. My camera kit while still being actively assembled must flow together with the hiking gear setup I have methodically put together over the last few years.
Besides landscapes and nature photography, I am an active member of the local running community and slightly obsessed with Marvel movies. If I am not working on my photography stuff during the weekends, I am generally exploring Richmond (aka RVA). Our brewery scene has been blowing up the last couple years and my neighborhood has been leading the charge.
Enjoy my work and if you see me around RVA, stop and say hi!
