Thank you for checking out my work -- I am happy you found yourself here. Photography has been the most important medium for me to discover and learn more about the world and the beautiful diversity of people in it. I was one of those kids that took a disposable camera with me everywhere, and once the internet became a thing you can bet I started my own little (terrible) photo blog and began to explore what it meant to capture how I see the world and share that vision with others. While attending high school and college in Michigan, I became fascinated with the mechanics of film photography. I spent countless hours geeking out in the darkroom, watching my images slowly appear on a blank page in a chemical tray. The process is a slow, tangible magic, and there in the dark is where I truly discovered my passion for light.
 
Now I call Santa Fe, New Mexico home, and I choose to root myself in the Southwest because the way that the sunlight interacts with the golden mesa and red rock valleys is unlike anything I've ever seen. A unique quality of light exists here that is nothing short of magic. Of course, traveling and exploring new corners of the world will always fill my soul with joy, and I am available for worldwide travel for any kind of project!
