I started my creative career as an art director and designer at several different advertising agencies. For five years I worked as a designer on brands like John Deere, Rotogrip Bowling, Storm Bowling, Ski-Doo, Johnsonville, Rayovac, and Can-Am Spyder developing designs and working on commercials and print campaigns. All of this art direction and design developed my love of photography. I realized that my favorite designs and ads focused on bold imagery and I spent most of my time searching for the perfect photograph to work into my designs. This ultimately led me to picking up a camera and creating the images for myself. After spending a year learning about photography from the Detroit Lion’s photographer, I took off on my own to create images for my own clients.
