my heart is deeply connected to my art and the stories that i get to tell.

i was the introspective, creative, awkward, one-friend-instead-of-many kid who ended up getting placed in a beginning photography class my freshman year of high school. mr. christensen taught us about light and lines and how to make pinhole cameras and develop our own black and white film. i would spend hours after school in the darkroom developing my film and fell in love with the process and art of it all. a spark ignited in me when i was 15 with that Pentax camera and while i shoot digital now, the fire has only grown
and i haven't stopped creating since.

i went to college for two years with the intention of being an elementary teacher but ended up dropping out to tell stories and document love instead. i fell in love with this art in the back of that small high school dark room and now i get the opportunity to tell stories and share them with the world.
