What do you enjoy most about your work?

Getting out there and connecting with the surfers through the lens, and traveling/meeting people across the globe are some of my favorite parts about what I do.

What inspired you to start your business?

A woman I dated several years ago inspired me to follow my passions and dreams.

What gets you out of bed every morning?

I love what I do, and am grateful for the opportunities life has offered me through my hard work and perseverance. Life is too short to waste and I make it my personal motto to “Live it up everyday!”

What is your secret to making progress each day?

Consistency. Even if it’s just one thing you do each day, its progress. Remember, slow progress is still progress!!!!!

Tell us one thing people don’t know about you.

Even though I’m very extroverted and know a lot of people. I am very private and introverted with my personal life, and have struggled just like everyone else has at some point. Life is a series of ebbs and flows, just like in the ocean.

A typical weekend for me is…

Is like any other day of the week! I love what I do, so it doesn’t feel like its work. So I just go at it 6 to 7 days a week! On the field capturing surfing memories or back behind a computer putting together a digital masterpiece!

What will people get from your business that they won’t get anywhere else?

Connection to others within the surfing industry and unique services that bring people together.

Have you won any awards or had any special recognition or acknowledgement of your business?

We have been featured in a couple digital magazines online.

What are your plans for the future of your business?

Our plans are to disrupt the surfing industry!

What’s your secret talent no one knows about?

My genius lies in my sustained ability to focus on something for an extended period of time and not relenting to outside influences.

What did you want to be when growing up?

I wanted to be a number of things. When I was really little I wanted to be superman, batman, and a ware wolf. As I grew older I wanted to be a pro surfer, and a lawyer.

What is your favorite thing to do in the wonderful area of Central Florida?

My favorite things to do are go surfing with my friends at the Central Florida beaches. Or shoot surf videos and photos when the waves get really good.

What would people never guess you do in your role?

People never think about all the backend work we do after we go out and capture their surfing adventure! Countless hours behind a computer screen to bring your memories to the screen every night, on top of all the other work you do as a business owner and photographer.

What do you love most about your industry?

I love surfing with my whole heart, soul, and mind. Being a business owner in the surfing industry is a dream come true. It’s hard to pinpoint one specific thing about it all that I love more than anything else. But if I had to choose, it would be inspiring the young children to surf. And watching them grow and flourish into adult surfers themselves, living a positive and fulfilling life.

How have you advanced professionally since starting your business?

I have gone from just another surfer guy to a well respected individual in the surfing community. Befriending our local Senators. Running and helping charities start-up, like “Surfing The Gap” which helps disadvantaged children get to go surf. I’ve even started working with a handful of surfing competitions from Florida to Puerto Rico, broadcasting live to all our fans online.
