I started my career in the medical industry and then became a court records copier to insurance companies. For that, I would drive 60,000 miles/year for four years! Then, I moved to Arizona where I waited tables in various restaurants and resorts. As time moved on, I worked in several retail businesses as a manager and district manager.
Finally, when I turned 40, I got into real estate photography. At that point in my life, the only camera I had ever held was a drug store cheapie. After a few years of honing my craft at a different company, I decided to start my own business in 2012. The rest, they say, is history!
In my spare time, I like to read, travel, work from home, and collect music CDs (I have over 7,500 and counting!). I love what I do and I am so proud of my team.
Cameras, lenses, and lighting were part of life around my household. My father was an industrial photographer for Stanford Research Institute and my mom was the family historian. My mom loved to video my family with her 8mm camera, shoot slides, play around with infrared and black & white film while her children were her subjects. My dad on the other hand, when at home, tried to regularly corral four kids for family portraits and realized how he appreciated photographing non-moving objects more.
My passion for photography started in junior high when I took a photography class that opened my creative eyes to what my parents had seen all along. I have been photographing lifestyle and people for years, but in 2012, I started shooting remodeled houses. That was a segue way into real estate and commercial photography and I haven’t looked back since.
I love to be outdoors and in nature. When I’m not at home, I’m either on the trails hiking, backpacking, or snowboarding (in the winter). I am also a huge music fan—I mostly listen to Indie—and I can play both the guitar and drums. Out of high school, I joined the Army Reserves. After that, I found my love for photography.
I shoot real estate on weekdays, while I am a storyteller/filmmaker on the weekends—I shoot a lot of weddings. My eventual goal in my creative career is to direct a full-feature documentary film. I have a beautiful wife, Mylene, who shoots weddings with me as a photographer.
You might consider me as a jack of all trades, who’s quietly mastering them all.
Upon achieving my bachelor’s degree in Radio, Television and Film Production from San Jose State University, my goal was to provide creative, outside-the-box-style marketing material for companies, products, and people.
My drive eventually led me to the world of real estate and Beyond RE Marketing, where my expertise behind the camera grew exponentially.
When I’m not creating behind the camera or editing my next project, you can find me at the gym, planning a trip to a new country, or just simply surfing through Netflix!
I am a passionate photo/videographer and have been flying and building drones since I was 10 years-old. Having a keen eye and utilizing an HDR Canon 5d IV camera, 4k Drone, and industry-standard Matterport Virtual technology, I capture the “magazine” shots our clients want and deserve from a single appointment.
Most of my free-time is spent with my wife and children. I am an avid 49ers fan and adrenaline junkie who enjoys cruising back roads on my motorcycle, or on a track in my race car that I have been designing since the year 2000.
I’m a shy, quiet, and friendly guy. Some of my favorite foods are eggs, cheesy corn and acai bowls. I enjoy watching and playing basketball and tennis. I love spending time with my family, friends and girlfriend. When I have some free time, I try to workout, run, watch movies, and play video games. Fun fact: I’ve been told many times that my laugh sounds like a monkey.
I love taking pictures of almost anything and everything. I think my love for photography started when I took a photography class in my senior year of high school. From that point, photography became my passion. It seemed like everything I observed was from the perspective of a camera lens. Everyday life and wherever I go, I’m always taking note of lighting, shadows, colors, details and how I would compose and frame a shot. Besides capturing moments, I love photography because it is a form of expression.
