Welcome to my photographic adventure. In 2012 I picked up a camera and began a journey to learn the fine art of making an image. Each slide on this page holds a lesson learned on this amazing journey. Some only about my camera and others one of life's lessons. Experiencing the amazing power of volcanos in Hawaii or a hypnotic lightning wrapped tornado in South Dakota was unforgettable. The silence surrounding one of Nebraska's abandoned farmhouses sent my mind searching for a family's last thoughts as I stole an image of their abandoned farm. In 2015 I look forward to integrating these experiences into a focused theme; step two in the journey. But only the beginning...

Thanks for joining me.
