Artist Statement:

I’m an adventure and lifestyle photographer from northern California, with my BFA in Photography. My passion has always been capturing the world in a new light, documenting memories that will last a lifetime, and sharing my enthusiasm for life as I go.

My second love, in addition to photography, is traveling and I take my camera with me wherever I go. In the past few years I’ve been lucky enough to incorporate travel into my business more than ever before, and I hope to make that a trend for years to come. I spend more time on the road than at home these days, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
