I have always had a passion for aviation, ever since I was a little kid. My passion for photography came later in life, and one day I decided to combine the two into what you see now and what this website represents. Through my aviation photography I have met some truly amazing people, especially since I Co-founded the Arizona Aviation Photographers (AzAP). Through my love of aviation, photography, and AzAP I was blessed to find the love of my life, Rylan. Rylan is my biggest supporter, my biggest fan, she has always encouraged me to get out and take photos and to be involved in aviation. She loves going along with me on trips throughout Arizona and California. She isn't always able to attend the photocalls or media events, but she loves traveling with me and being around aircraft. I am blessed in more ways than I can count, but there are always things in my life that I can work on.
Rylan truly is the love of my life, and I am working hard everyday to become the man she deserves. I'm blessed because Rylan and I love each other enough to work together to make our marriage successful, to make it last. We're both blessed with amazing family and friends who support us, who want to see us succeed and are willing to help us however they can. So, my 2014 New Year's Resolution is to become the man Rylan deserves, because spending my life and growing old with Rylan is the top item on my bucket list. So cheers to 2014 and a new year of photography, friends and family, and yet another chance for us to get it right.
