When I graduated college in 1997 I landed my first teaching job in a charter school in Mesa, AZ. Prior to that I had lived my entire life on the east coast of the U.S. The landscapes in AZ were amazing. I'd spend weekends hiking in the desert and rock climbing in Sedona. After a year I moved back to Northeastern Pennsylvania and wished I had pictures to show my friends and family that gave them the same emotions that I had felt when I was out in AZ. My passion for photography was born. I soon bought my first SLR and started noticing more of the beauty around me. I spent most of my photography time out in nature. In the past few years my daughter and son were born and more of my photography naturally focused on my family. Right now I teach fifth grade and coach a HS soccer team. Those commitments and my family take up much of my time, but the time that is left is spent trying to improve my photography.
