His opportunity came one day while attending a Jimmy Buffett show and he met his long time friend and mentor Lyle Trenchard; a local music photographer from Virginia Beach with 30 years experience in the concert photography world. He began to shoot concerts and media events all over the world to include artists and events such as; The Grammy Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Britney Spears, KISS, Prince, The NBA Allstar Game, and Country Music Awards.
