My passion for photography started in 2001 when I joned the military as a Naval photographer covering daily operations. After serving the U.S. Navy for 5 years I became a news photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area covering local news and sporting events mainly at Stanford since we were based out of Palo Alto. After several years of news photography I decided that I wanted to expand my understanding of web technologies as most everything was becoming digital and online. While attending school I found my self photographing strictly on a freelance basis covering mainly sports. Since then, I was published in publications such as Sports Illustrated, USA Today, The San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times, The San Francisco Chronicle, and many more nationally and locally.
