Greetings!This is me. And that's my wife.

Generally I don't post pictures of people with their eyes closed.

...or when they're half naked.

...or out of focus.

But every once in a while it occurs to me how ridiculous it is that I get to make pictures for a living. This was one of those moments. It's a moment that's more important than f/stops and exposure compensation. It's a moment worth remembering.

That's what I'm about.

I'm originally from Texas. Spent a decade in Washington DC, and now I live in New York City.

Ten years ago I started Mud Productions fresh out of high school. Back then I was primarily doing wedding videos but soon found much more fulfillment and opportunities with photography.

I shot nearly everything that came my way —weddings, portraits, conferences, architecture, corporate events, headshots, sports, food, products, and even a catheter but I don’t like to talk about that one…

In 2010 I had the opportunity to travel and take pictures in Egypt, Cape Canaveral, Yosemite, and the Cayman Islands. I enjoyed working on so many different assignments and meeting people from all over the world.



In 2013 I launched my Adventure Portfolio and resolved to pursue opportunities that feel more like memories instead of projects.

After a decade in DC I moved to New York City with my hot wife in the summer of 2013.

My camera has served me well, and I’m excited to see where it will take me next.

That’s my story so far.

…actually, I forgot to mention the part about me giving a lot of high fives, but you'll figure that out soon enough.

If you’re in New York City or just visiting I’d love to grab a burrito and hear about you. Hopefully our stories can share a few pages together.
