I have been studying photography about 12 years.  Born and raised in Redding California, I have a passion for seeking natures’ beauty, quiet and stillness.  I graduated from Chico State in 2006 with a Bachelors Degree in Communication Design where I also developed my affinity for photography.  I often combine my love for landscape photography with my digital editing skills, making my photos more vibrant and pop out with color.  Although, the mountains, rivers and trails are home to me, my day job is working as the lead Apple Technician at Shasta Computer repair in Redding where I loves helping customers get the most out of their technology.   When I am not behind a camera, you can find me on the lake or river kayaking.  I won the Sundial Splash kayak race this year and last year finished a 100 mile Kayak race from Redding to Chico in 14 hours, placing in the top three amateur devision.  I also lead an adventure group on Facebook called “Wild Hearts Adventures” where I plan and organize outdoor activities for a growing community interested in exploring the best in Northern Californias’ beauty.
