I love to create! I have been taking photos for about 8 years now, started taking it more seriously about 4 years ago. I have traveled across the country in cars older than I am with one goal in mind - To capture beautiful, real, genuine moments of people and the world they are living in. There is no better way to train or practice photography than driving 5000+ miles and seeing nearly every sunrise and sunset over a 3-week period. I have lately been shooting live concerts and events, in addition to working on studio work with some of these artists.

How did you get started with photography

I was always surrounded by photography equipment since my grand father was one before I was born. It wasn't until I turned 22 that I finally started looking for a creative output and have been doing it ever since.

What do you love about your job?

I love capturing emotions and giving people satisfaction with the work I provide. I always take every job personal since my main goal is to deliver something that me and the clients will love to share with the world.

What are some of your favorite places in Chicago to take photographs?

I love downtown Chicago especially around the reflective buildings since they provide an amazing bounce of light I like taking advantage of it.
