I give you the quick and dirty version here, but if you want the feature length version check this out.
First and foremost I am grateful father of a incredibly smart and beautiful daughter and the lucky husband of a beautiful and loving wife. While I am originally from Cleveland, Ohio we live and work in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Photography has always been a passion of mine but initially I never intended for it to be more than that. I went to school for Marine Policy and have an awesome job working for NOAA on restoring wetlands and coral reefs ever since. While I have always loved the art of photography, I never considered it more than that up until a few years ago when people started insisting they pay me for my art. So slowly over the last couple of years I have begun to grow a small photography business as my “fun job”. I use the quotes around fun because I guess everything is pretty relative as my NOAA job is pretty fun in and of itself, you won’t catch me complaining about being paid to dive on coral reefs.
So here I am a few years later I still love my day job and my “fun job” is booming so much that I am starting to have to turn clients away (Having time with my family is still my first priority). There’s lots more to this story but suffice to say if you check out the blog regularly I am sure you will get the jest.
