When did you first get involved with Salt Life?
I got involved with Salt Life in 2015 when Salt Life’s relationship with the Roatan Marine Park connected me to the brand. Since then, I have been both a photographer for Salt Life as well as a Team Member. I regularly serve as the photographer for Salt Life’s large scale photo shoots. My work can be seen on the walls of the Salt Life stores and even on some of the current clothing items.
