Bio: I'm a professional photographer living between Las Vegas, NV and Denver, CO. I started my photography career in the ski and snowboard industry working with companies such as NBC, Vail Resorts and O'Neill. I moved on to shooting small club venues and local music shows during the summer when I was not shooting winter sports. I started to really enjoy the music photography industry and soon moved full time to covering concerts, festivals and clubs. I've been able to work with amazing companies, people and musicians. I currently work for a DJ doing tour management and photography all over the world.

What do you do when you're not snapping pics? When I'm not working, I love to escape up to the mountains and ski.
What is your dream photoshoot? After thinking about this for quite some time, I don't think I have a dream photoshoot. I love to diversify my photography and keep things fresh. I just can't imagine a photoshoot that is the end all be all of my dreams. I like to take every shoot and make it the best I can.
How do you "Live The Moment"? I try to live in the moment by reminding myself to step back and enjoy things. I'm incredibly lucky my career takes me all over and I really try to just sometimes sit and enjoy the places or people I'm at or with. Too often I'm planning the next thing, the next hour, the next year - but I've really tried to work on just stopping and sitting every once in a while. Grabbing a cup of coffee and people watching for an hour or so really brings me down to the moment.
