One thing people may not know is that you are a talented photographer. What got you interested in photography?

Photography sparked my interest when I met a great friend of mine, Scott Reither, in Hawaii. His work spoke to me years ago and ever since I’ve continued to learn through many different photographers. I would have to say my favorite thing to shoot is landscape. I love to travel, so being able to capture the beauty around me is important to me.
