About: I’m a husband, a dad to two (soon to be four), a photographer, entrepreneur, teacher and I try to give back as often as possible.

I live the simple life in Nashville, TN with my wife and two kids and we’re in the process of adopting two more children from Haiti (they’re almost home!). Read my official bio here.
