I was born in Chapel Hill, NC. I got interested in photography during high school after I got a camera phone. I was mainly taking pictures of wildlife. I went to college in the mountains of North Carolina and started raft guiding during the summer to make some money. It was during this time that I started doing action photography. It started out as just hanging out and taking pictures of friends to practice. As time went on, I started to go places that were more remote and difficult to access to try to get a good shot. It's usually worth it. I enjoy getting to take pictures, but the best part about this lifestyle is getting to enjoy these incredible places with my friends.
