My dad had the ability to take anything that made a noise and make it sound good. I'm fortunate to have the talent that he shared.
At the age of 7 my dad taught me to play bass guitar for his gospel group "The Fishers Of Men" I spent my middle school years on a tour bus traveling and playing music. When I was 14 I began playing in a home town band (Soapbox Havoc) and in 2006 the group transitioned to Don't Sigh Daisy. I've sustained a passion for music and it has become a way to convey the memories, stories, and past experiences to where I am now and to where I strive to be.
When I was 16 I bought my first camera, a Minolta QTSI 35mm. I asked my sister to walk back into the woods with me to take photos. The shot of Sandy on the log was one of the first I had ever taken.
A photograph is an emotion, it's a way to look back on life and see the beauty that may have been in that moment without the distractions involved that keeps us from realizing it in that moment.
I've been blessed with the opportunity to be involved in so many great peoples lives and journeys and my photographs savor that. Families, Friends, Marty and so much more.
The first video I ever made was of me singing a "Lady GaGa" song in my bedroom, and I kick myself for it but people liked it! Since then i've done everything from country to pop, rock to oldies rearranging each song into something the creators probably never intended. Adding instruments to enjoyable videos that have been shared many times across the web. I've been so thankful by the many people that listen and request more. Recent videos have taken more of a mature side giving me the opportunity to create more informal videos and meaningful work.
I'm blessed with the talent and opportunities to create what I have, and i'm Thankful for your interest.
