who i am
Born 1977 and raised in Rockford, IL (just outside of Chicago), I moved to Denver in the fall of 1996. Over the years Denver has become home for me. I love the city, the people, the mountains and all that is around. As I sit here today, I find myself a very happy man. First and foremost, I have the most beautiful and amazing wife Megan. We recently got married two years from our first date. Over this time, she has become my best friend, the woman I love with all my heart and the wife that I look forward to life's many adventures with. I can't imagine living life with anyone else.
During the week I get to work at an amazing church, as the Media Pastor, doing all the things I love. From producing services, creating media, working with teenagers and much, much more. Over my 7 years on staff I have wore many hats, from Youth Pastor to Media Pastor and just about everywhere in-between. Running massive fund-raisers, missions-trips, retreats and conferences, there is always something different and exciting to be a part of.
Now, I also run Joel Tyson Photography. After flirting with photography for many years I have finally decided to go for it. So at the beginning of 2012 I got serious about it. I just had a moment where I decided that this is something more than just a nice hobby. It's a passion, I love photography! I love capturing the moments that define our lives. So that's what I do, put myself in position to capture those moments in a way that tells a story.
Well, that's a little bit about me. Thank you for taking the time to read some of my story, hopefully soon we can meet and I can hear a little bit about yours.
