Ever since I was a kid, the wonders of the ocean have always captivated me, and I wanted to learn everything I could about its inhabitants. In 2008, I started a business aqua-culturing coral and servicing marine aquariums. During my time spent growing coral, I was introduced to the world of scuba diving and immediately knew my life was about to change.
The ocean was calling me, and a few life decisions later, I found myself on the sandy shores of Maui, where I currently reside today. I started working as a divemaster, fulfilling my dreams of ocean exploration. Using the tools and knowledge of graphics that I gained in Chicago when I worked as a designer, I was able to pick up where I left off creatively and started using photography as my creative outlet.
For the last six years, I have been working in the tourism and excursion industry. During this time, I have gained a clear perspective on how to create unique and innovative content personalized to each client and brand I work for. I have created a variety of photo and video work for different brands and tourism organizations, from providing high-resolution marketing materials, to creating viral content reaching millions of people.
