I'm currently the Digital Design Director at Esquire Magazine. When I'm off the clock you can find me outdoors running, cycling, hiking and snowboarding. I got into photography in my teens taking pictures of my friends skateboarding and snowboarding. I now collaborate with talented photographers on photoshoots for the mag and I also love to bring my camera with me on adventures. I'm not sure if I’m super qualified to give tips on photography haha but someone once told me that the best camera is the camera you have on you and I believe to be so true. Some of the best pictures I have taken are on my iphone.

Voting takes place in three rounds; first the finalists are chosen, then the category winners, and finally, the overall winner is selected.
