BIOGRAPHY
I'm an airline pilot by profession with many side gigs to keep me overly busy (how I like it). Besides flying, I'm our Pilot Unions Negotiation Chariman, I own a small cabinet shop and welding/manufacturing, and now I've added photography to my resume. I've been shooting as a hobby for about 16 years. Over the past few years I've recently opened a small studio in my house where I primarily do portraits and now starting weddings. Being this venture is not my primary income it remains low stress an fun, how I prefer to keep it. I love tinkering with things and enjoy testing equipment such as lenses and lights, etc. I've found myself buying things just to see how they work or compare with another item, thank go for Ebay. I enjoy helping others, and like to meet people with similar interests. I keep my shop open to people who want to learn how I built something instead of building it for them and selling it. This goes for custom camera brackets, portable power supplies and other things I've tinkered with. I love learning about everything I can and typically jump in 200% when I get into a hobby. I love photography because there is so much to learn and create.
