Hello and welcome to my photo Portfolio. I am a hobbyist photographer passionate about engaging with and exploring the great outdoors. I grew up as a child with limited interaction with the outdoors and rarely spent time camping or anything more adventurous. That all changed when I joined the military. My time in the U.S. Army shaped a lot about me, and it inspired me to love the outdoors like I never did before. The first time I took a camera with me on a hike, I knew I had found a true passion in my life that I would push to its limits, much as an explorer pushes back the boundaries of the unknown.
