I didn’t find photography; photography found me. Born on the East Coast into an offbeat military family, I often sought solace behind the camera viewfinder to escape the loneliness of gypsy military life.  After graduating college at Virginia Commonwealth University, with an advertising degree, I put down my camera and did not pick it back up until recently moving to Houston. My passions are photographing people in their natural elements, street photography and my three Labrador Retrievers.
