What I Do

I'm a photographer whose main priority is to create imagery for the use and support of Texas A&M and the Texas A&M Health Science Center.

My Texas A&M Story

I was born in Bryan; my dad was completing his master's degree at the time. I've been coming to Texas A&M since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I saw campus at very young age and became comfortable with it; it always felt like home. We came back time and time again, and in 1999, my sister started her freshman year here, so I got more of the Texas A&M experience through her. Low and behold, later on in her college career, she dated a BQ (a member of the Fightin' Texas Aggie Band), and that led me to think about joining the Aggie Band. I basically decided to join on a whim. I thought, "Hey, I'm going to do this,' and joined the Aggie Band. I was an animal sciences major at Texas A&M and that felt like home to me, too. Everything I did in that was very comfortable, very challenging, and I have a great love for animals and animal sciences. I stayed around and got a master's degree in agriculture development, and then I joined the Health Science Center, which is where I've been up until now.
