My photography journey began in 2018 when my career as a musician ended and I was gifted a DSLR by a family member. I needed something to fill the creative gap in my life, and the camera I had received (a Nikon D50) became my new obsession. 

I started taking it to gyms I frequented to learn how to take the amazing dynamic shots I saw on social media and in books and magazines. I was especially drawn to combat sports and CrossFit, as I was fascinated by the discipline and effort it took to compete at a high level.
