I have always been interested in photography and during my military career I had the chance to visit many interesting places and get some great photos. After my last two deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq I retired from the Military. I had a really hard time adjusting back into life and dealing with the crowds at my children's events. I discovered that photography gave me a view in to the world while giving me a way to focus on something besides the crowds. The more I got in to photography the more I enjoyed it. My goal is to someday go back to Afghanistan and do a photo documentary of the areas where I worked during my deployment.
