My interest in photography began when I was in middle school. I found an old film camera that belonged to my father and began to experiment. I never had the courage to pursue art full time, so my photography fell away. Eventually, I found my way back to photography during my time in the military. It was a creative outlet, and a way for me to escape from the rigors of Active Duty. Now, I am studying Graphic Design and Art History at the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
