His ultimate goal in being a creative is to inspire others through his images, and to care more for the beautiful planet that we inhabit. The more people we convince to care for our world, the more likely we are to save it.

"I grew up climbing mountains in Colorado, so I was immediately drawn to capturing their beauty and power. I was inspired by an entire collective of outdoor photographers I followed on Instagram, always giving me inspiration to better my skills."

HOW I GOT STARTED WITH OLYMPUS

"I bought my first camera the week after I graduated college and never looked back. In grew up climbing mountain in Colorado, so I was immediately drawn to capturing their beauty and power. My very first camera was an OM-D E-M10 Mark II. I knew nothing about cameras at the time, I simply purchased it because it looked unique and had amazing reviews. My current go-to Olympus setup is my OM-D E-M1 Mark II with the 7-14mm F2.8 PRO, perfect for landscapes."

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT OLYMPUS

"The size and weight of Olympus cameras are above and beyond any other camera system. I am thrilled by how light my bag is when I have to go on a 10 mile hike. I also have to do a lot of hand-held shooting so the 7.5 stop image stabilization is HUGE for me. Olympus provides me with all of the tools that I need to be a successful, full time photographer. It is a very family style environment and I couldn't be more thrilled to continue this partnership for years to come."
