About me:

I first picked up a drone in mid-2014, and have been hooked ever since. What started out as a hobby has morphed into a full-blown career where I operate as a Part 107-certified commercial remote pilot, writer, photographer, and consultant.

My work has been published in magazines, including Drone360, and for major brands such as Intel. I will also be featured in the forthcoming book, "Masters of Drone Photography," published by Ammonite Press. Prints of my aerial photos are available by special request (my online store, Aerial Print Shop, is coming soon).

In addition to working with a variety of clients, both large and small, on aerial photography and videography projects, I've also written and developed marketing strategies for top industry brands including Flying Robot International Film Festival, DroneDeploy, Intel, Focal Revolution, and DroneLife.

Born and raised in California, I currently reside in Michigan. I enjoy traveling the country and world in search of fresh new perspectives.
