I have been driven in two basic directions in life. First, I have a passion for medicine. I became a paramedic and have worked in the field for almost 20 years. From being a metro paramedic, to working offshore in the oilfield, and even serving as a combat medic and flight medic in the U.S. Army during three combat tours. I have spent most of my adult life serving the public and healing the injured. My second passion has been in photography. Since I was in high school, and in some aspects before that, I have always enjoyed capturing images and seeing the world from a new perspective. Recently, I found it has offered me a singular focus and a way to step out of my daily life. Photography has allowed me to capture beauty in life, even in some of the harshest areas of the world. I have found focusing on capturing that perfect image, the way I perceive it, gives me an inner peace and allows me to communicate how I perceive the world to others. I enjoy the art of waiting in perfect silence, out in nature, for the world to align itself in that one perfect moment and then capturing that moment. Whether its a simple landscape, an exquisite panorama, wildlife in the throes of life, an old house decaying and forgotten, or an old man sitting on the street, I strive to capture that one fleeting moment before it passes. I work on bringing my unique view so others can experience that fleeting moment and hopefully enjoy the experience. The Aurora Borealis to the craggy mountains of Afghanistan, I have captured images from all the places I have lived and traveled. My goal is to travel more extensively, and to even more remote places on this planet, to find those fleeting moments that pass in the blink of an eye and immortalize them.
