“As a creative and imaginative thinker, art has always been a huge part of my life in many forms including music and painting. I decided to pursue photography after first trying to become a rock-star (no kidding) and realizing it wasn’t my life’s calling. I believe that photography is. I am fascinated by photography as a window into the past that allows something to keep on existing, even after it’s gone.
I strive to capture moments authentically, but cleverly, using light, color and composition to make things compelling and beautiful.
Photographing people is awesome, because they are always different and changing. I love that I get to meet so many new people and hear their stories, to hear what has brought them to the places in life where they are at. Other things that I love: road trips, camping, croquet, dancing, large bodies of water, lobsters, flannels, champagne, accordions, the color yellow, midnight drives, and adventures! Life is good.”
