I have always loved music, and that is something I inherited from my father. Growing up, we always had records on and he had seemingly an endless supply to choose from. To this day, he has a whole room dedicated to his records, posters, memorabilia, and photos from a lifetime of loving and supporting music and the arts. So, obviously that set me up to appreciate it all myself and it is something I proudly share with him.

I took up live music photography kind of naturally. I have always loved taking photos, almost to the frustration of some of my closest friends. I want to capture a moment I feel others might miss. My own social circle is composed of some very talented musicians, including my better half Bianca. This has helped and encouraged me to improve daily. I will never reach what I would imagine perfection is but, I love trying.
