Been skating for around 5 years, and loving every minute of it. Can’t get enough of the skate community and enjoy photographing it. Weapon of choice: 5D Mark II (my baby). Stoked on what’s in store for 2013!!!!!

What can I say, Cami throws down. It’s not often I see her skate, got lucky recently and did a little shooting. Blunt slides for days!

Got a 24-105mm Lseries and a 50mm in my arsenal. That 50 is my love, photos come out flawless, I’m always amazed. This photo is part of my “One of Many” collection. Leon of Blue Sky Longboards killing it.

Took a trip down to Puerto Rico to shoot Guajataca 2013 for Ghostskate and snapped this. Ross Druckrey shredding at the jam, so much Steez and a gnarly hill.

Sanchez ALWAYS puts me to work. By far one of my favorite people to shoot with. Took a whole day to shoot out in queens NY with the Bustin crew. Sick shots, steezy skating, perfect scenery and worth the tons of skating.

When you finish editing all your photos from a good day of shooting, you come across a couple photos that stand out. To me, this one is just stunning. Great scenery + stoked skater = Dope photos. Big thanks to Noish always bringing his A game. So sick, many more like it!
