Born and raised in Tennessee, Sparky grew up in a small southern town surrounded by nature and historic architecture that inspired him to explore photography. In April 2008, Sparky got the chance to relocate to a much larger city, Los Angeles, CA to pursue his passion and further education in photography.
Shortly after arriving, Sparky joined with a group of local photographers, LA Shooters that would go on a few outings a month to photograph new places and inspire each other to better their craft. Through their advice and constructive criticism, Sparky has become a very strong photographer in his favorite field of nature and architecture.
Fun Facts: His nickname, Sparky, was developed by his High School classmates because of his energetic and outgoing personality. Sparky handlebar mustache was the inspiration for his photography logo that was created by fellow artist friend, Dick Cherry.
