I have been working in photography professionally for over a decade now- I picked up a camera to document the devastation of my hometown after Hurricane Katrina and it's been hard to put down a camera ever since.
Louisiana is such a historically and visually interesting place that is also modern and vibrant in commerce. I love telling the story of this place, her people and her culture through a range of photography genres: sports, photojournalism, commercial, portraits, lifestyle and aerial, as well as branching into videography work.
I currently live in the greatest city in the world, New Orleans, with my wife Bethany and two mischievous rescue pups, Tchoupitoulas and Delachaise.
