I've been fascinated with still and motion photography from childhood. I see light as the ultimate way to convey my art. The huge open skies and beautiful sun rises and sets of Southern New Mexico are inspirational daily. We lack the complexity and urban beauty of a larger metro area but, we have some very unique landscapes found nowhere else in the world.
I co-own a production company in Las Cruces, New Mexico with my father and don't consider what I do work because it's what I love. I think everyone should peruse their dreams, because only you can hold yourself back and it's the American Dream after all. So why not go after what you truly love.
My motto is High Fidelity and Low Stress and that's how I approach film making. It's work but, it's also something we love...
