Hello - it's me

If you are here I can only presume it's because you want to learn more about me. Or you've clicked on this page by accident...but I'm going to assume it's because you want to learn more about me, the human taking your photos.

Well for starters, I'm an awkward and highly sarcastic human from Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Sports and Tourism Management, which I don't use in my day-to -day life, but it sounds cool right? I love to travel and some of my favorite places I've been include Hawaii and Poland. I'm also a big fan of all things nature if you couldn't tell by my choice of college studies. The outdoors are pretty much my favorite and when I'm not working, you can probably find me somewhere outside exploring trail, climbing trees, swingin' from vines, or something along those lines.

Other things I love? Marvel movies, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, video games, being roasted by my friends, and running Spartan Races. Basically I'm a big nerd who also likes friendship and fitness.

Sarcasm and joking around are my main two methods of communication. If you can't handle that, well, I'm probably not the person you want to shoot your photos. If you do decide to have your photos taken by me, I can promise you I will be joking around and trying to make you laugh a lot. You will likely just end up laughing at how dumb my humor is, but hey whatever works right?

Let's hang out and take some pictures! Or just hang out. Making friends as an adult is hard.
