BEHIND THE LENS
I'm horrible at writing about myself, but I want my clients to know who I am and where I've been.
I was born and raised in Wentzville, Missouri. Most of my family is still centered around St. Louis.
I went to the University of Central Missouri (or as it was known then, Central Missouri State University) and graduated in 2003 with a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice.
I joined the U.S. Army shortly after college graduation. I was stationed near Mainz, Germany for my first 2 years. I wish I had been a photographer then. Rolling vineyards and ancient Roman towers painted the area I lived in. I spent my last 3 years stationed at Ft. Riley, Kansas. I met my wife Becca while stationed there. She was studying at Kansas State University to be a Speech Language Pathologist.
I left the Army and followed my wife to the Emerald Coast of Florida where I became a Police Officer for the City of Ft. Walton Beach. Being a Police Officer is what God made me to be.
I got my first DSLR (camera) in 2013 when we were expecting our first child, my son Caleb. I haven't been able to put it down since. We recently had our second son, Colton!
My passion is in family portraiture. I have the perfect background here for it, beautiful Navarre Beach.
I hope you'll entrust me to capture your families memories and thank you for viewing my site.
