I grew up in Northern MN doing what most kids did; spending every waking minute outside. I have a love and passion for the outdoors, and I believe that translates in my work. I have been shooting photography since 2009 when I enrolled in a photography class for my Graphic design degree; I was hooked, and I haven't set the camera down since. What first became an interest grew into a hobby that again developed into an obsession (ask my wife). I have had a lot of encouragement and great instruction along the way that has helped me develop as a photographer.
