My life is filled with people. My morning begins with no coffee and an expectation that I can help love the world. I work smarter not harder so the analytics of my mind are always racing trying to discover in what way can I make an impact today. I want to give to the world perspectives that they might have missed and to do that I have to watch in expectation the world around me.
We began this journey together, my wife and I, and together we still encourage the passion in which we began. Now, she focuses on Benny, our son and being the most incredible support. We are dreamers, doers, seekers of love and life. We are friends, companions,cheerleaders and coaches to each other. We are the mirror to each other’s strength reminding each other to find the good in all things. We are confidants and companions and now we have a little gift of a son to give more of our love to.
As a dad, Benny he teaches me to be more free, more myself, more spontaneous and more flexible. I am a lego master builder and I have saved all of my legos so my he can too articulate his mind into the world he has been given. I am a world impacter because I am filled with love desiring that connection with people we the utmost importance.
I can relate to the freedom of being young and enjoying every second of the journey. I am a deep thinker, a people perceiver, and an achiever. I love to give to the people in my life, creating time and space to love the world around me. As a coach I am an encourager, as a husband I am an inspirer, as a father, I am a fun creator.
In our home, you’ll find boxes of memories fill my life of moments that I want to cling to. Snapshots are time capsules that release perspective, memories and times forgotten that each one is bursting to release. I look back on life and the love through family images I have see on the walls of my home and realize this is the most important thing. From a young age, I lived through the moments and memories that decorated the walls of our homes and our hearts.Now as a father, I want to save those moments so he too can have the memories that I hold onto.
“People have shaped my life and given me a profound understanding that when you love and serve people with your gifts, you make the most impact on the world…”
My passion for capturing moments began in 2007 and over the last 10 years I’ve captured over 200 couples becoming husband and wife. As one of about 150 Certified Professional Photographers (CPP) within Iowa, I have had the opportunity to travel throughout the US speaking on photography, marketing, efficiency and management. I have also received a certification as a social media specialist.
My passion for people began in high school and continued into college where I received degrees in youth work and non-profit management. That passion for our youth continues on in my life as a Junior High Volleyball coach. As a teacher I am thrilled to give into people’s lives and honored to receive an upcoming Craftsman Degree from the Professional Photographers of America for teaching, service and education in 2018. I love investing into the community around me and have served on the board for the Janesville Community Center 2016-Current and LCMS LYF Executive Board Member 2001-2004.
