I was fortunate to have been raised in the islands of Hawaii and developed a fascination for the natural world at an early age. Swimming and surfing in the ocean I experience balance and exhilaration and a connection to the driving force of our planet.
I also find great reward in documenting and capturing milestones in people's lives and the beauty of the natural world. Photography allows me to capture moments in time that either can't be described with words or that occur so fast that they have come and gone within the blink of an eye, or the click of a shutter. Being able to freeze a moment and share it with others is a surreal concept and my ultimate goal with photography.
