I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast and moved away to College Station where I received my degree in Chemical Engineering. After graduating from college I moved to the Texas Panhandle to begin my first full-time job. Photography became a passion of mine when I began co-oping during my junior year of college. Living in a city where I knew nobody forced me to figure out different ways to entertain myself during the evenings. Photography quickly became my "go-to" hobby when I needed something to eat up extra time. I no longer have time that needs to be eaten up; however, photography is still my favorite hobby and will, likely, always be.
