I began my career in the U.S. Navy Special Warfare program known as S.W.C.C. I was introduced to cameras in this program for reconnaissance purposes but became quickly infatuated with the way everything worked. My first job out of the military was test shooting for John Casablanca models in Southern California. Eventually I moved back to my home town of Miami and fully immersed myself in commercial photography. It didn't take very long before I began to come up the ranks of Food and Beverage photographers among South Florida.
