So basically i'm just your average college student, who in addition to his required courses, also interests himself in photography and videography. I was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area; however, I now reside in Eastern Idaho, where I am studying at Brigham Young University Idaho and majoring in Political Science.

I recently returned from serving a mission of service for my church and the people residing in the country of Poland. As with before my mission, upon returning I once again started shooting photography. I had to invest in a new camera (minor detail); however, it has been wonderful to return to one my true passions. Prior to my mission I shot stills for 9 years, learning at the feet of my great grandfather, Rolf Pinkwart, who is an amazing photographer in his own right. I placed highly numerous times in county and state fairs, and participated with the 4-H photography program. During this time I was also able to cultivate more art amongst my friends, and took numerous portraits, which led me to finding work in a more commercial sense. I have high hopes for the future, and cannot wait to snag a few more quality frames.
