Welcome to my website!

I was born and raised in St. Louis and, except for serving in the Air Force, I have lived here all my life. While in the Air Force, I enjoyed living in Texas, California, and Italy.

Over the years, I’ve worked as a professional photographer for several studios, including Anmar Photography, Complete Photo and Video, Haller Concepts, Trotter Photography, and for my own studio, Apple Creek Productions, servicing many different clients. I closed Apple Creek Productions at the end of 2018 to pursue a career in computer programming.

Currently, I work full-time as a software developer and occasionally do some freelance photography, which is still one of my favorite things to do. However, now I just do photography for pleasure, for friends, and for family.

This blog acts as a central location where I can post about the things I enjoy and link to my photography website, as well as anything else I might want to share.
