I am in love with my wife and our seven-year-old son. Family is very important to me and I am thrilled to experience life as a son, a brother and now a dad. I love to travel and see new places and meet people from different cultures. On my bucket list is to see the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London simply because the ceremony has taken place continuously for the past several hundred years. I love reading books on history and science.

While being born in the city of Dayton, birthplace of the Wright Brothers doesn't give me any more advantage of capturing stunning images of aviation, it does drive a passion in me to capture such remarkable flying machines. There is plenty of opportunity here with the large number of static displays at the National Museum of the United States Air Force as well as performances every summer at the Vectren Dayton Air Show.
