Photographer. Athlete. Dream Chaser. From deep space to the depths of the oceans and everything in between.
I took some necessary time off to disconnect from social media and find more balance in my life over the last few months. It’s been great for me to reconnect with loved ones, work on the fundamentals of my business, and feel reinspired with the path I have chosen! This whole journey has been a wild ride. I’ve had to take more leaps of faith than I ever would have imagined and I wouldn't change it for anything. Thanks again to all of you who have been following and supporting my journey, and stay tuned for some exciting stuff coming soon : ) Photo by my good friend @handsomerobinson
Tonight is the final Supermoon of the year and I’ll be spending it surfing under the moonlight with friends🏄♂️🌕! This image was taken around 5:45am this morning while @lex weinstein was soaking up the moonlight here in Mexico. Check out those the perfect waves in the distance too 😍🙌🏼. —- I encourage you all to step outside and take a minute to look up at the moon and stars tonight if you have the chance! #supermoon
So excited to be part of an Instagram photo contest where two winners will receive a new Tesla Model S for 3 years! @jess wandering, @alliemtaylor , @jedidiahjenkins and I will be the judges!

It’s up to all of us to make sure that the places we love continue to exist and inspire us all! #capturethechange #contest #sustainability #sponsored
Peaceful moments on Kauai. This is a 2-second exposure taken on the @djiglobal Mavic Pro using the @polarpro ND64 filter to slow the shutter speed down and create motion with the waves. I had a blast playing with different long exposures (sometimes up to 3 or 4 seconds ) and bringing this vision to life. @reyannemustafa and I were the only ones on the beach while camping in an epic adventure vehicle thanks to @kauaioverlander 🙏🏼🙌🏼
Getting excited about warm summer days and crazy adventures with friends! Solid boat crew with @christianschaffer , @ambertorrealba , @paddymackk , @davidhatfieldphotography Big thanks to @surflakepowell for showing us around your backyard! I’m still convinced there is treasure in this cave somewhere haha. Lake Powell, Arizona.
When I was first starting out with photography, a huge focus for me was trying to get my name and images out there in every way possible by submitting to photo contests, sharing my work online and being super active in the photo community. Looking back now, I realize just how important this was to the foundation and success of my career. I’m honored to now be selected as one of three judges for the #CapturetheChange photo contest going on now through 3/29 with Bank of the West which focuses on capturing images around sustainability and positive change for the environment. TWO WINNERS will receive a 3-year lease on a new Tesla Model S. 😵 Plus, NO entry fee required. Just post a photo on the subject to your feed, follow and tag @bankofthewest , and use #CapturetheChange #contest Check out @bankofthewest for more details and good luck! #sponsored
From deep space to the depths of the ocean and everything in between, I love exploring and pushing myself and my photography in every way possible! Learning to fly (paraglide ) has been incredible and I’m excited to start producing content from skies around the world! Here I am taking a quick break from the computer to catch the sunset with friends over my hometown of San Diego, CA. It’s crazy to think that I’ve been shooting with a GoPro for 13+ years! Check out the blog I wrote for GoPro about how I use the camera and it’s new features to continue to capture unique photos and videos all over the globe. Link in bio. Shot with the @gopro #Hero7 @ozoneparagliders @flytpg @forsakeco @hippytree
Photographing deep space has been a dream come true! I took this image with a telescope of the Orion Nebula (M42 ) that is over 1,300 light years away and 25 light years wide. At its core, thousands of stars and planets have been born and we can even see the beginning stages of solar system formations. Most of what we know about star and planet formation has come from scientists' studies of this exact nebula. Honestly, deep space imaging is way different than taking a regular landscape photo but I’ve loved learning about the process and meeting so many incredible people along the way. Huge shout out to my good friend @gibsonpics and all of the awesome people at @optcorp for helping make this dream come true! 🔭🌌👽 #astrophotography #orionnebula #deepspace
