I was born and raised in Manhattan Beach, California wallowing in west swell closeouts for the majority of my youth. I have been shooting now for 5 years and only in the recent few have I been a conscious photographer. There is quite the distinction and I'm ever working on the transition. I love to free-dive, surf, body surf and swim, preferably with a camera. I can only say I hope I can keep my lifestyle around the ocean because anytime in the ocean is a good time and it keeps all of us going.
