Born in the 80s. Given my first camera when I was pint-sized. It was a Pentax. Grew up with rolls of film in my pockets. Photos were blurry. Parents thought it was a phase. Ten years spent photographing things. Apprentice to a few photographers. Loaded lots of film. Didn't shoot much. Decided to teach myself. Photos got better. No longer a phase. Went to college. Majored in Communication. Public Relations and Journalism to be exact. Learned a lot. Started my company, Hybrid Angle as a side hustle. Graduated. Job in Delaware. Traveled a bit. Felt something was missing. Did some soul searching. Changed career focus. Took a chance. New job in Atlanta. Account Executive at Jackson Spalding. Decent PR practitioner. Much better photographer. Created the photography studio service at JS. It was small. Learned to art direct my own productions. Couple big breaks. Work used all over the world. Wore the Associate Creative Director hat for a bit. Felt ready for a change. Struck out on my own. Fully-independent multidisciplinary creative and partnering with brands and agencies to produce incredible film and photo content. Wanted to work with my talented friends more. Started ARMADA, a freelance content creator collective for when the brief calls for a few extra hands. Loving it. Feeling blessed.
