Growing up in the mountains of Northern New Mexico, along the banks of the Pecos River, I developed a unique respect for the outdoors. This did not diminish during my 21 years of service with the United States Air Force. No matter where I found myself in the world, I took time to appreciate what I saw around me.

As a hobby, photography is new to me, but my love of the Central Florida outdoors is not and I have been privileged to witness some truly amazing sights in this area.

Through my photos, I try to capture the awe of the Indian River Lagoon, especially at sunrise. Within each sunrise, I find hope and make an effort to bring this hope to others and share the beauty that surrounds us.
