I began my study of photography at age fifteen while certifying as a Los Angeles County/NAUI driver. I wanted to chronicle my diving adventures to how family and friends what I loved about the ocean and its creatures.

Fortunately, the big kid on the block was Gary Felton, a certified SCUBA instructor and award-winning underwater photographer. The quality and excellence of his photography was both an inspiration and a standard I set for myself.

I earned an associate of arts degree from Orange Coast College in Photography, then graduated from Cal State University at Fullerton.

I have published articles in Sail Magazine, Sailing, Woodenboat, Dive, Small Boat Journal, Daily Pilot Newspaper, and have won several International Underwater Photographic Competitions. I hope you enjoy the samples of my photography below.
