Surfboards to photography...

I’m a portrait/composite photographer based in St. Augustine, Florida.

If you look into my past, you will find that I owned a small, but lucrative company called Black Pearl Creations in northeast Florida where I manufactured and produced surfboards for around 10 years. While building surfboards, I attained my degree in graphic design, needless to say, it came in pretty handy for marketing and advertising my business. I later decided to move on from surfboards and work as a graphic designer full-time, that’s also around the time I discovered my love and obsession for photography. I found myself always in need of images to be used with my design work, so instead of purchasing stock images, I thought, why not use my own. This opened the door to a myriad of possibilities and is what led me to where I am now. I'm excited to see where it will go from here!
