I am an underwater, nature, and landscape photographer residing in the Pacific Northwest since August 2015. Before then, I spent 17 years in Santa Cruz, California on the edge of the beautiful Monterey Bay. My passion for photography grew out of a love for SCUBA diving the amazing kelp forests of California. I wanted to share these experiences with family and friends. As well, I strive to create compelling images of the wonders I experience. After several years dedicated to the underwater world, I found new inspiration photographing the coastal landscapes near my home. This love of landscapes has expanded in to areas inland as I continue to explore the great outdoors.
