Photography started off as a hobby, turned into a passion, and has now developed into a career. I am continually afforded amazing opportunities within this career and am blessed with the amazing friends and networks that have nurtured my growth along the way.

Born and raised as a Dallas city boy, I joined the Army in 2005. After seven years of service, decided to make the move from my duty station at NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, to Colorado Springs, home of some family friends and an exercise science degree program I was interested in pursuing at the University of Colorado. It wasn’t long that I adopted my first pet, Ollie. Adventuring with him changed my outlook on life and changed my passions from exercise science to media.

I have had the pleasure of working for incredible companies & clients like: Matador Network, ThisIsRange, Sierra Designs, Subaru & Subaru Adventure Team, RAD Apparel, S2O Designs, Team RWB, Mountain Standard, The Broadmoor, Ruffwear, Stabil Gear, Classic Air Medical, Trek Light Gear, Zukes Treats, OutThere Colorado, Altitude Hospitality Group, MuttRuk, Visit Colorado, Visit COS, Visit Pikes Peak, Royal Gorge Route, CityROCK, and many, many more.

Cause he’s the OG and he deserves all the love I could ever give give him and more 🥹 Big brother life hasn’t been necessarily easy for Ollie, but I’m so proud of how well he is adapting and how gentle he has been with Echo. He’s helped so me patience as well in her training as it’s reminded me just how horrible he used to be and look at him now! It’s a process and we’re all in it together 🤘🏼 . . . // #newfamily #canon #photography #naturepic #welcome #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #doglove #dogoftheday #adoptdontshop #pawsnhooves #roamtheplanet #colorado #natgeo #tentree #earthvisuals #folkscenery #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #earthfocus #canonusa #destination #coloradodog #newpuppy #memories #together

4 days in and I’m so so in love with this little girl. Since Echo is deaf, when she closes those little eyes for a nap… she is OUT cold and even Ollie stirring and bark doesn’t startle her in the slightest. I know challenges are ahead… but for now we’re just enjoying the moment and I can’t wait to watch her grow along side ollie and I 😭 . . . // #newfamily #canon #photography #naturepic #welcome #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #doglove #dogoftheday #adoptdontshop #pawsnhooves #roamtheplanet #colorado #natgeo #tentree #earthvisuals #folkscenery #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #earthfocus #canonusa #destination #coloradodog #newpuppy #memories #together

Meet ECHO - Help me welcome this beautiful girl to our little family 🤘🏼 As far as we can tell, Echo is deaf… but she is settling in nicely and I am very excited to take this journey of learning new training techniques/styles and giving her the best home and life possible! @pawsnhoovesco #meetecho . . . // #newfamily #canon #photography #naturepic #welcome #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #doglove #dogoftheday #adoptdontshop #pawsnhooves #roamtheplanet #colorado #natgeo #tentree #folkscenery #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #earthfocus #canonusa #destination #coloradodog #newpuppy #memories #together

It was definitely 5° with blistering winds… but the view of the sunrise stretching across the peaks was so so so worth it! ☀️ . . . // #sunrise #canon #photography #naturepic #naturelover #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #doglove #dogoftheday #optoutside #roamtheplanet #colorado #natgeo #tentree #earthvisuals #folkscenery #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #earthfocus #canonusa #destination #coloradodog #travel #memories #together

Instagram < Reality… SWIPE over to see Ollie doing his darnedest on this frozen blue lake 🥶🤣🐶 . . . // #doggoadventures #canoncaputure #rei #frozenlake #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #instadog #doglove #dogoftheday #friends #coloradodrinks #adventuredog #denver #wildernessculture #coloradomountains #newyear #earthfocus #canonusa #instaworld #coloradodoggo #coloradodog

While this mornings hike was a blast, the memories of my friend were on the forefront of my mind the whole way. A year ago today, January 8th 2022, my good friend Drake, his partner Hannah & their dog lost their lives in an avalanche on Hoosier pass. The news devastated me then and still isn’t easy to swallow that still today my good friend is no longer with us. The Blue Lakes hike we took today passes just under the ridge where you left us buddy… I drive by it countless times a year and never not thinking about the lives that should be living still today. His story is part of what inspired me to ensure I took the @pikespeakalpineschool AIARE 1 course to learn to be safe for myself and others. The backcountry is never not a dangerous place, especially when you add a human into Mother Nature, anything can happen. Thinking about you hard today buddy and miss that smile you always had in your face 😢 #starmanforever . . . // #friends #avalanche #photography #naturepic #naturelover #adventure #dogs #dogsofinstagram #dog #dogstagram #puppy #doglove #dogoftheday #optoutside #roamtheplanet #colorado #natgeo #tentree #earthvisuals #folkscenery #beautifuldestinations #discoverearth #earthfocus #canonusa #destination #coloradodog #travel #memories #together
