behind the lens

First things first, thank you for visiting my collection.
I am a local photographer and graphic designer, born right here in the Tahoe Basin. Graphic communications is my education background but the camera has always been my passion.

I specialize in travel photography but I also have many years experience in doing freelance photography and graphic design work. From weddings, family portraits to automotive, residential and commercial photography. I enjoy all aspects of creative photography. My full time occupation is graphic design and currently work as a artist for an awesome company here in Reno. From logo design to full company branding i have years of experience in the field and can meet to discuss what you are looking for.

The Rootless Lens is a collection of my recent work. I hope in sharing my images and designs I motivate others to get out and explore their creative sides. Please feel free to explore my site and then head over to my Social Media outlets.

Follow and subscribe to stay update date on my adventure I call life.

My most recent work will be uploaded to instagram.

From weekend drives up to the mountains to exploring far away countries. Why sit at home when you can load up the truck and go out and explore new places.


I hope to help others get inspired to go places, explore new areas and have fun with life. If I can motivate one person to break the habit of being lazy at home and to get up and get outside I will be happy.


Life shouldnt be all work and no fun. When was the last time you did something that scared you? When was the last time you mett someone new? Gone and took a random road trip to nowhere?
