I was born in 1984 and raised in Southwest Ohio where I currently reside. My interest in photography really grew after I purchased my first point-and-shoot digital camera in the early 2000's and quickly realized what I could do with it. I've since graduated through a few Nikon digital SLR's and currently shoot with a Nikon D7000 and an assortment of lenses.
I've always had an interest in nature and related subjects since I can remember. I really enjoy taking pictures of wildlife, especially birds, as well as flora and landscapes. I also like to get up close and personal with the help of my macro lens. I'm a firm believer in the idea that you can find beautiful and interesting subjects for your images all around you, whether it be right where you live or halfway across the world.
