I have been living this great life in Hawaii since 2004. I have been able to explore every corner of Hawaii and the history it holds. Let me take you an island adventure, my style. I will share with you all the knowledge of Hawaii and the photography I have acquired in my time here. I can’t wait to show you my world.


Currently holding it down here in Hawaii. I work with a group of friends as a professional photographer with Oahu Photography Tours. I dabble in many categories of photography to help bring new ideas to the game. Come with me and capture time, push the pause button on life by taking a photo.


I moved to Hawaii from Colorado to expand my photo business. I got into photography while studying graphic design. Now living in Honolulu with tropical weather, I take my camera with me wherever I go. Hawaii encourages me to photograph every time I’m out. Join me to explore, experience, and discover Hawaii.


Originally from Minnesota, I decided to move to Hawaii to for family that have been living in these islands for a long time. I travel back-and-forth to the mainland to enjoy my passion of beatboxing. Ask me to give you a little beatbox when you come on the tour next time.

Certified Sustainable Tour Operator Sustainability Commitment Statement

We at Oahu Photography Tours support the Hawaii Ecotourism Association’s principles of sustainable tourism. We pride ourselves in educating our guests with the most accurate information about Hawaii. We also make it a point to train our staff with local laws and knowledge of wildlife protection. Every one of our guides is trained in current CPR and First Aid practices. During our tours, we ask anyone that smokes to please but your butts in the trash. If you see trash on our tours, please let a guide know and he/she will pick it up. Please bring a reusable water bottle on the tour, buying plastic water bottles only creates more trash and you are pretty much paying for something that is free anyway. If you would like to join us on a beach clean up, follow our Facebook page for more info or contact us. We are not tree-hugging hippies, we just don like trash on the beach and dead animals.


Hawaii Ecotourism Association addresses operating policies in the following areas:

  • Environmental Management
  • Staff Management
  • Interpretation Management
  • Consumer Evolution Management
  • Marketing Management
