Born & raised in Romania until the age of 10, at which point I joined my parents in the U.S. which fled the country a couple of years before because of it's Communist state. Graduated high school in 1998, and shipped out 15 days later to start Basic Training at Fort Knox for the 3 years that I joined to serve in the U.S. ARMY.
My first camera I ever bought was in 2000 while on my peace keeping tour to Bosnia. Although only a DSLR-like point & shoot, I was always pushing the limits with it. After realizing that I was being limited by any point & shoot that i could get, I soon stepped up to professional gear,
I strive to be the best that I can be, and am one who's goals are high with all that I do. With that said, as soon as I knew that Photography is what I wanted to do, I quit my regular job, which at the time was Graphic Design, and I concentrated all my efforts towards becoming a better photographer. I am self taught, and the photographers that I look up to differ in style greatly, because I appreciate anything that is interesting & different, and that way I don't necessarily have a certain style. I think that's what sets me apart from most photographers.
I'm very technical with everything that I do, so adapting to different situations is very easy for me to do. Because I use lighting very much as a tool, I am able to change my style to what the client needs.
