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, photographer, and writer. My passion fuels my profession and I wouldn’t have it any other way. People, beyond my close friends and immediate family, started asking me where they could purchase prints. Hence Aerial Print Shop was born. I hope to expand and include work from more incredibly talented peers in the near future.

You can regularly read my drone industry insights on DPReview and InterDrone’s Latest News section. Some of the photos sold on this site have been featured in major publications including the The Sun UK, Telegraph, and Mirror as well as the book “Masters of Drone Photography.” I've also appeared on AirVuz after hours and serve as a for judge major festivals including Boston Drone Film Festival.

Born and raised in California, I now reside in Michigan. Before COVID hit, I enjoyed traveling the globe with my drones and discovering the world from a new perspective. I look forward to the day when I can continue to explore new locales and capture our world in the variety of interesting ways an aerial perspective allows. If you have any questions, or want to collaborate, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
