More About Me

I was born and raised in the small town of Camden, SC, and then attended Clemson to get an architecture degree. When I realized that's not wanted I wanted to do, I decided to get my B.S. in Business (which I did May '17) since I've always wanted to do my own thing and own my own business.

I've always loved music, photography, and the outdoors. I've always had some sort of camera for as long as I could remember, so I was always taking pictures. I grew up in the country with ponds and woods surrounding my house, so a lot of my inspiration and work is nature based. That's where the whole concept of "True North" was born.


When I was considering changing majors, I really didn't know what I exactly wanted to do, or what I should do. In the years prior, I had lost my interest in the outdoors and spent a lot of my time indoors and on the couch, and in a way, my own sense of direction. So, I decided to change my life around and started getting active again. To help clear my head, I started mountain biking a couple of hours everyday after class around the lake (Lake Hartwell).


The first few times out there was hard (I mean I WAS over 300 lbs.), but as I kept going out there, I realized how calm, relaxed, and stress-free I was and how more clear-minded I had become, and also started noticing how beautiful it is out there. That's when I realized how much of a passion for the outdoors I really had. I started taking my GoPro and after seeing some shots, and seeing some of the beautiful things I captured, I realized I wanted to be a professional photographer, my own "True North".

I started drawing the logo back in 2016, although it's intention wasn't just yet a logo. It was meant to be my next tattoo. I got my first when I turned 18, but told myself the next one I got, I was going to design.  The overall outline took me several months, and although my drawing is better than average, my shading isn't. But as time went by, and the more I looked at it, the more I realized I could make it my brand, the representation of who I am and my journey, and True North Productions was born! 

My journey and passions has led me to the creation of what you see before you now, "True North Productions". With True North, I hope to help others capture their special moments on their own journeys and help make sure they have a lasting memory.
