My love for photography first began when I was on the yearbook staff at my high school. While there I learned the basics of photography and how to develop film (yes, in a dark room). From there my love and interest just grew. I am mostly self-taught with just a handful of formal training under my belt. I have also been lucky enough to befriend an array of very talented photographers and artists that have been willing to share their "secrets" with me along the way.
