Born in Charlotte, North Carolina, Nate was first introduced to the medium of photography through a highly influential high school photography teacher. After graduating from Appalachian State University in N.C. with dual degrees (a BS in Technical Photography and a BFA in Graphic Design) he set off to the Pacific Northwest to work with a digital advertising agency in Portland, Oregon. He worked there until 2007, when he left to work as a Freelancer.
In order to keep a fresh perspective on life and visionary arts, Nate spends as much time as possible traveling around the globe. He has spent generous amounts of time on four continents, always wandering on back streets with cameras in hand. One never knows the whereabouts of Nate, or what work he may be completing.
