bio From a very early age there were only two things I wanted to be: a photographer or a cartoonist. The inspiration stayed alive all the way through college. I graduated Southwest Missouri State, now Missouri State, in 1996 with a BFA with an emphasis in photography. After graduating, I moved to Kansas City, Missouri where I assisted commercial photographers for several years. Once I gained the knowledge and experience needed, it was time to start my own photography career. I constantly strive to for the best image possible and enjoy the creative process of working with clients to exceed their expectations and to capture their vision in a photograph. I work hard at solving problems and challenges early with pre production and scouting, this skill has earned me several advertising clients and the ability to provide clients with an experience that will lay the foundation for a great working relationship for future projects.
