Ren has been a fly-fishing guide, a decorative painter, and a cheesemaker. He was always taking pictures. After working as a professional photographer for almost ten years, Ren now is focusing on Architecture and Interior photography.

He is a friendly fellow and very reliable, which is easy because he loves his job. If you walked by the house, you might hear Ren serenading his fabulous wife on the concertina. Really.

Ren is an FAA-licensed drone pilot and available for aerial photography and video. He was awarded Best of Houzz 2018. Visit his Houzz page here.
