I was fortunate enough to grow up in a suburb just outside San Francisco, California. One is never short on photographic material when growing up in such a beautiful, unique, character filled place. College then took me to the breath taking Pacific Northwest, where I fell in love with the city of Portland. Although playing soccer for the University of Portland was what brought me there, the kind hearted people, distinct seasons, and unique culture are what kept me there well after graduating. Then I began a new chapter in life, I packed up my belongings, and moved across country to New Jersey, where I played professional soccer. A dream I have had since childhood finally came to fruition. After a once in a lifetime road trip across the United States, I landed back in the Bay Area to pursue coaching. Soccer may be my first love and passion, but photography completes me; the ability to take a camera in hand, embark on a journey, and capture a moment, is priceless.
I urge you all to Dream Big, regardless of age, we all must be dreamers and believers.
