Questions and Answers
What 3 words best describe your work?
Vibrant. Candid. Fun!
What drew you to this field/how did you get started?
I've loved photography since I was child but didn't have the opportunity to study photography until 1995 as a senior in high school. Back then it was film—and I still have the first picture that I shot and developed in the school's darkroom. I went on to be a part-time wedding photographer while attending California State University, Fresno. While I'd explored many different professions after graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree, I went back full time to my original passion, photography, at the very beginning of the recession in 2007.
If you weren't in your current profession, what would you do instead?
This is my full-time profession. I wouldn't want to do anything else. I love what I do.
What are 3 words that describe your personality?
Responsible, detailed, punctual.
What's your favorite quote?
"Happy wife, happy life!"
What's your favorite way to wind down after a hard day?
Spending time reading to my kid or watching a good movie with my wife.
