About Me

The purpose of my photography is to help instill a sense of “risk taking adventure” in others to help serve as a reminder life is short and that tomorrow is not guaranteed

As a cybercrime & fraud fighter moonlighting as an adventure traveler and amateur photographer, I’ve been fortunate to be able to take the “road less traveled” by hiking to ancient Inca ruins, reaching the summit of the tallest peak in Africa, exploring Ireland’s countryside, and standing in the shadows of Mount Everest.  When exploring other cultures, we allow ourselves to experience new lifestyles, local food, and different views of the world.  We exchange stories and share laughs when meeting locals and bumping into fellow travelers.  When returning home, we are no longer the same person we were when we left – our view of the world has positively changed forever from our travel experiences.
