I have been living in the Washington DC/Baltimore Area my whole life. I personally enjoy landscape and nature photography and love the challenge of trying to find interesting locations around my area. I also enjoy traveling and love to bring my camera with me when I go.

My personal philosophy when taking photos is to take the ordinary and turn it into the extraordinary. I enjoy the challenge of getting the perfect shot and then the challenge of postprocessing to turn the photo into enticing image.

Hopefully my photos can bring you a little bit of joy, I know it brought me joy creating these images!
