Photographer, writer and lover of the good light. Blessed and thankful to be back home in Ohio where I share an eight acre farm in Beavercreek Township with my Doberman/Shepherd mix, Luna. I share my passion with photography through leading nature photo workshops and tours and do a bit of commercial work. 40-something, single dad with two daughters and one son who are my everything. My photography is my celebration of beauty, life and faith.
