I was born and raised in Southern California. With the eagerness to be in the mountains, I made the move to Mammoth Lakes, California where I can step out of my house and explore the Eastern Sierra. When I’ not fighting wildfires for the U.S.
Forest Service, or traveling and camping with the best of them, I am out and about adventuring the Eastern Sierra with a camera, cooler, and positive attitude.
I started my creative side of work with animation, drawing, and photography. While working for Apple Inc. for some years, I was able to exercise this creative side and knew it would always be a hobby. Though, now I am a Hotshot Firefighter for the Forest Service, I still enjoys my time outside with a camera. On a wildfire or not.
