It all started on the day I married my wife Jillian. July 26, 2008.

We were college sweethearts, young, and in love. But on that day as we read our vows, I made her a promise. A promise to live a life of adventure with her.


Fast forward two years and we decided to take our greatest adventure yet. Packing up our life in Nashville, TN we moved to Cap Haitien, Haiti to serve as the directors of a children's home.


For the next seven years we called Haiti home. While there we founded an organization called Emmaus House which my wife still directs from the States. We adopted our two oldest children, Nalan and Dalencia, and Jillian gave birth to my little Jake. And I also started my photography career. Living in a country with so much overlooked beauty, I made it my personal mission to showcase the wonders of Haiti to the world. My work has been published in multiple international magazines, newspapers, websites, used in Haitian national ad campaigns, and you can even find my prints hanging at the Haitian embassy in Washington D.C. Beyond taking tourism pictures of Haiti, I also worked as a humanitarian photographer, helping other organizations capture their work in pictures. Here are some of my all time favorite shots from Haiti: 

In 2017 my family moved back home to Tennessee and welcomed our youngest son, Judah, in 2018. Now my days are spent working for an environmental non-profit, carpooling my kids to soccer and dance, and trying to enjoy the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee as much as possible. 

My favorite things in life are God, my family, working in nature, a good Chinese buffet, a bottomless cup of coffee, and an empty memory card in my camera.

I'm still loving this crazy, wonderful adventure-filled life I started with my wife, and I'd love to help capture the moments when you start your own adventure with the one you love.
