I was drawn to photography at a very young age. I loved looking at magazines. I was fascinated by the images captured on the pages of my father’s Sports Illustrated. There was something magical about seeing Michael Jordan suspended in mid flight with his tongue out delivering one of his signature dunks. The pages of National Geographic showed me a beautiful world that was begging to be explored. Rolling Stone showed me what cool was. When I turned 16 years old my grandmother got me my first camera. That was the beginning to life long journey of taking pictures.
