Yeah, yeah, technically there are ten W's.

Almost everyone I have surrounded myself with in my life has helped me become and be my truest self.

That perspective—and love—changes everything.
What do you teach, write, blog, and talk incessantly about?
How to see the light. Literally. How to see the world around you with fresh eyes.
When did you get your start?
My photography career began fresh out of college when I got a job working for an amazing photographer who became an invaluable mentor.

The beach.
Why are you here at BPC?
To encourage and inspire people to see their lives in a whole new light and to use their cameras as a tool to do it.

A Favorite Photo

This is a quintessential shot of my daughters. It's been my phone screen saver forever. It tells a great story of their enthusiasm and willingness to humor my creative whims. These two girls are the most amazing kids on the planet and by far my most inspirational muses.
