First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to check out my photography. My goal with this site is simple: get more people to experience my images. I want to share them. I have greatly enjoyed capturing them, whether underwater or on trips to foreign countries. But ultimately, alone on my hard drive, they create little effect in anyone's lives.


Every time I dive, I understand even more that our oceans are home to the most amazing, diverse, and unique organisms, and that they are worth fighting for. My hope is that by sharing these images I can, perhaps, help to nurture that awareness in others. Or that, perhaps, my images will inspire someone to travel to experience someone else’s culture, customs, and--best of all--cuisine. I would be honored if at the least some of my images might make someone’s day a bit more interesting.


So, who am I? I am an entrepreneur, a photographer, a cyclist, a PADI Divemaster, a husband, an adventurer and a lover of everything outdoors. I don't see myself as much of a writer, but I've been asked to describe the context and experience capturing some of my images, so I've included some of that in my captions. Please enjoy these images, and share them with anyone else you think may also!
