A photographer, dad, husband, son, brother, et cetera.  Currently I reside in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with my wife, daughter, and dog.

The better part of the last decade was spent in the American West wandering through deserts and mountains.

Taking pictures of people is my favorite, which is really just the evolution of my lifelong penchant for people watching.  Everyone has their story to tell, and my goal is to capture pieces of that story through still images.  I approach a wedding as if a cover story is being written for a magazine and it's my job to provide the images; the cover, the centerfolds, and the supporting documentary shots.  Family sessions the same.

I've been lucky enough to work with and learn from some very well respected and established photographers in the Midwest.  There's not a lot I haven't seen at a wedding, and I would be thrilled to be surprised by what you can throw at me...  whatcha got?

I love music, movies, YouTube, golf, good food and drink.


I am a photographer for laid back people searching for a professional photography experience bringing results you'll want to look at over and over.

In the end, you'll find that I'm an easy guy to work with who knows what he's doing and likes to have a good time.

If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

...in the wild.
