I fell in love with photography during my first black & white class at the age of 15. The dream of exploring the world and sharing experiences through images excited me. Happy to say 25 years later, it still does. This site is designed to challenge myself with a 365 project, a space to organize collections and to connect with others that share the same passion.
Grew up in Hendersonville, NC and I look back fondly on my childhood. Graduated from the College of Charleston, love the school and the city. After college I attended a summer intensive program at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography. Spent 6 months traveling around the U.S. through 10 different National Parks to indulge my fascination with landscape photography. I couldn’t think of anything at the time that made me happier so I decided to chase a dream and make a living as a photographer. Who needs money anyway? Moved back to Charleston, helped run a photo lab and began shooting weddings.
The Mountains kept calling, I finally paid attention. Moved back to Hendersonville to create a photography and videography company. Great experience running my own business. Maintained relationships with clients over a decade. But my idyllic vision was a life spent wandering around in the woods taking landscape photos. The reality had turned into filming legal depositions and creating marketing pieces for small businesses. Decided to pick up work with a childhood friend splicing fiber optic networks all over the country. Met a great woman and decided traveling for work wasn’t the best case scenario.
Decided to apply my marketing experience and local knowledge in real estate. Went through Cumbie and Trull Real Estate School and became a Realtor. Got married and relocated to West Asheville in 2015. My better half’s work is in Burnsville so when she heads north, I’m typically working with clients in Buncombe and Henderson Counties.
