I had a lot of fun leaving the United States for the first time and taking this shot while in Mexico over Spring Break. Hope you enjoy!
My Kind of Town
Something about a city skyline just makes me feel a mixture of joy and excitement. Hope you enjoy!
A Ride to the Show
To me nothing screams New York City more than Broadway and taxi cabs. Hope you enjoy!
On Top of the World
The lengths some photographers go through in an attempt to get a good shot can at times be extreme, but the payoff could be huge. It took a long time to get to the top of this rock in the heart of Colorado, but it only took about a half hour to snowboard down. Hope you enjoy the view!  
The Varsity
This is one of my favorite concert venues in the twin cities especially during the holiday season when the surrounding area is decked out for the holidays. 

    Prior to joining Deviant Art, I believed the best way to display and view works of art was through the city streets in addition to the art galleries, but this is hardly the case. Online there are so many artists sharing to a crowd of art enthusiasts spread out all over the world. I am excited to be involved with the online art community and I hope you share my enthusiasm whether you’re an artist trying to get discovered, a hobbyist who likes to share their works with others, or someone who enjoys viewing the seemingly endless stream of content. Here there is no minority selecting a handful of artistic styles deemed suitable for the public which allows for a viewing spectacle like no other. Art is for the masses, and only recently does it feel like it is truly ours.

United States
I originate from the Midwest of the United States, but enjoy traveling outside of the region whenever the opportunity presents itself. I started getting interested in photography early in my high school career around the time I got my driver’s license. For the first time I was able to travel outside of my immediate area on my own time to pursue the activities I desired one of which being photography. Through my new found freedom I was seeing and experiencing many things for the first time, and I made it a priority to capture my discoveries through the use of my family’s camera. Traveling to some of the larger cities in my area I came into contact with street art, and became immediately fascinated with the art form. Ever since my initial interaction with street art I’ve been trying to make my own with some success. Around this time I started taking photography classes at school to pick up a couple of techniques I couldn’t have hoped to learn on my own. One of my favorite things to do at school was to take advantage of the nearly abandoned dark room to develop photos (I went to an old high school that offered photography classes before the digital age) which is where my love for black and white photography emerged. Now that I’m out of the public school system and at a university there isn’t a whole lot of free time, but I believe that being an artist is a big part of what makes me who I am today. As a result of how art has positively influenced me for several years I make it a point to create time for my hobby. I make art, because it can make me feel a sense of pleasure most people can only get with substances, it pushes me to go out into the world more often, to go somewhere I’ve never been, and put me in situations I’d otherwise never experience.
