Tell us about what you do: I have always been an avid lover of photography, and about 3 years ago I was introduced into the world of rock climbing and decided the passion that athletes place into the sport is no doubt worthy of documenting and revealing to the world, since then I have been putting most of my time and effort into creating motivational images for athletes both professional and recreational for use as inspiration during the tough times along the road to greatness.

Favorite adventure? In 2012 my friends and I packed up and traveled the west coast reaching destinations such as Joshua Tree, Bishop, Yosemite and Tramway California, totin a canon 7D and one lens, it was on this trip that I was exposed to the bulk of my inspiration and it was the trip that really sparked the fire for me to photograph and document the world of rock climbing and adventure sports, and since then I haven’t looked back.
