He was responsible for creating a detailed photographic record of Westarctica's October 2017 invasion of Calsahara and served as an official combat photographer during the battle. In honor of his achievements in photography and as thanks for his service to the crown, he was knighted in Otisburg by Grand Duke Travis.
