I took up photography in 2009, bought my first camera: a Canon EOS XSi. I now own the beautiful full frame Canon 5D MKII. My first concert assignmernt for TC Daily was Stone Temple Pilots at the Roy Wilikins. Since then I have done several dozen assignments of different varieties for The Planet. I have had some awesome opportunities that I wouldn't normally have had. Outside of the TC Planet I do many different photo jobs and I enjoy every minute of it. I have always loved music. My first offical cassette tape was Run-DMC's 'Raising Hell'. I enjoy music so much it's not natural. My first love is electronic music (Kruder-Dorfmeister, Theivery Corp etc). I also love dub (not step). I grew up in Bloomington, MN. Lived in NE Minnepolis and after creating two kids, now reside in Elk River.
