After 14 Plus years as a competitive Martial Arts practitioner Including over 150 Medals and Trophies (90% First Place), 15 National and International Competitions (7 Gold, 2 Silver and 4 Bronze Medal including a Gold Medal at the 1988 Olympic Trials and Member of the 88 US Olympic Team), I learned that hard and smart work pays great dividends.
I took those skills into the corporate arena and invested 14 years as a Sales & Marketing Executive in the Telecommunications Industry. Learning to apply some very important principles of Discipline, Determination, Dedication, Patience, and Consistency enabled me to enjoy a very successful corporate career resulting in numerous Top Sales Awards. As the industry began to change in the late 90's, I started to think about how to turn my passion into viable business opportunity.
In July 2002, I set out on the journey to build a successful Photography Business and I have to say, I love what I do and have no regrets for choosing this amazing path. A path that has taken me to various parts of the country and wonderful places in the world doing what I love and sharing that experience with awesome people along the way.
