Being a photographer is all about capturing the personalities of any subject from people to landscapes. This is what I strive to do every time I click the shutter.  If it's a beautiful landscape, my goal is to create the mood and feeling so anyone who views it feels like they are standing there. This usually entails late nights and early mornings to capture beautiful light in great locations.

If I am photographing people, the goal is to capture natural reactions that show who they are in their environment.

Tech Enthusiast

Technology in general is a huge passion of mine. From services to gadgets, I am constantly trying out new things and learning how to take advantage of new technology. Android is my platform of choice for both my daily driver phone and tablets as it caters to my geeky side with tweaking and flashing new roms.

Playing tech support for family, friends and neighbors is a common occurrence and I love it. It keeps me on my toes with every day issues people run into and is a great learning experience when it's something new. 

I am active on many social networks, but Google+ and Facebook are the two biggest for me. 

Lifelong Learner

Lifelong student is another way of putting this.  While being a student in a traditional sense applies at this time, it will not apply in the same way forever. Being a lifelong learner is something everyone should be!

Trying new things is a key aspect in being a lifelong learner.   Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone a little to do just that. This is something I am working on myself to constantly learn new things and gain new experiences throughout my life.

As the famous rendition of a quote says: 

"It is better to have tried and failed, than to have never tried at all."
