I was born and raised in Virginia Beach/Norfolk, Virginia and lived there through high school. I attended James Madison University for college in Harrisonburg, Virginia and enrolled in a study abroad program for a semester at Bond University on the Gold Coast of Australia. It was here where my dreams began to materialize and start becoming a reality.
After my semester abroad I always knew I would come back and set myself the goal of living in Australia. I am now a resident of the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Australia and have been living here for almost ten years.
"All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them."
It was my strong passion for surfing/bodyboarding that drew me to the ocean initially. The allure of slabbing waves and champagne powder days is what keeps me so intrigued in capturing the moments when all the elements come together. I started capturing the ocean and the surroundings as a side hobby about 12 years ago but it wasn’t until I purchased my first waterproof camera setup 6 years ago that I felt something special and I knew I wanted to turn this into something to share with you and those around me.
My parents have always taught me that you can do whatever it is you want to achieve as long as you believe in yourself. This is something that I am truly thankful for as it gives me the drive to pursue my dreams.
"The real trick in life is to turn hindsight into foresight which reveals insight."
This is only the beginning of my journey and my idea for my website is to bring you along with me through the unique and rare moments that I capture which allow you to open your mind and think freely to give you that extra motivation to follow your own dreams.
"You can fail at what you don’t want so you may as well take your chances on what you do want."
