I had the opportunity to document 4x Olympian, Bahamian Triple Jumper Leevan “Superman” Sands in Auburn, AL. During his training session we joked about him being “old” in this league, 35 to be exact, but truthfully you wouldn’t be able to tell his age watching him perform.

Also, if you happen to be in the Auburn area this summer, make sure to stop by Snobiz and Sand Pit Snacks for some amazing summer treats!

“In the Quiet Moments” is my latest photography series featuring professional track athletes. After having the opportunity to document 3x Olympian, Gold & Bronze Medalist, DeeDee Trotter during her retirement year, I began to notice the quiet moments that these olympians face every day that many don’t get to see. We watch them compete in the largest stadiums, positioned on the blocks in complete silence before they take off, but rarely see the “behind the scenes” that has gotten them to that point. This series is a closer look at these moments.
