The beginning

Photography, especially surf photography, has intrigued me for many years. Reading surf magazines and seeing the work of Art Brewer, Jeff Divine, and Dan Merkel had me mesmerized. I thought it can't be that hard: point the camera, focus, and shoot. Ultimately I learned it is a lot harder than that. Over the years, I have read, practiced, acquired equipment, and now produce images that I hope people may enjoy. My interests have branched out into landscape photography and nature photography, art prints. After many years of working, surfing, traveling, and shooting images, I finally settled down in the small fishing village of Santa Catalina, Panama. I found the place to be a lovely, laid back village, with friendly people, and very good, often world class waves. I met my wife here, and we have 4 beautiful daughters, and life is good. 

The present

When the waves are on, I can generally be found in one of two places: on my board at the point, or in a boat in the channel, capturing the action.
