Owner & Instructor
I'm an Air Force veteran and pilot by trade, having flown the F-15E for nearly ten years, including 114 combat missions in Afghanistan. Then in a major life change, I bought a 27-foot sailboat and sailed from North Carolina to the Caribbean over a few years.
My journey as a professional documentary photographer also started on that adventure, networking with important nonprofits that desperately needed photography to get their message out. I've completed photodocumentary projects for several humanitarian & environmental nonprofits & NGOs around the world since 2014.
I teach in-person photography lessons in between documentary trips, and the continuous demand for lessons led me to start offering online lessons. It has been a joy to make these classes available to everyone.
Lake Tahoe has been my official home since 1990, where I enjoy backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, diving, and volunteering on an alpine search & rescue team.
