Hi, thanks for stopping here

Bios are difficult for me. Attempting to fully describe oneself through a collection of sentences seems to do a real injustice to a person's true personality. But overall, I am just extremely grateful for all of my life experiences, the people I have met along the way and the stories I will one day tell my children. At any rate, here is hail-mary of a shot to tell you a little about me:


I travel, I tell stories, and I adventure. But most importantly, I live to make the most out of life. Through the lens of my camera, I seek to tell the stories that make us human. From tourist-caused animal abuse and exploitation in SE Asia to the hectic life of an American college student and to a brand's effort to connect with people, I aim to capture and tell stories that elicit a sense of community and relatability by bringing life to stories that inspire.


Through extensive travel, I realized the importance of seeing and experiencing places and cultures that differ from one's home. Human's from all backgrounds and cultures are fairly similar — we have many of the same drives and passions. And compassion is built when we forge connections with people from many walks of life. Through my photography, I aim to peel back barriers and give people the opportunity to learn about a life different than their own.


I have worked with clients including the Portland Trail Blazers, Moda Center/Rose Quarter, Mountain Dew, Nature Valley, Ford, Panasonic, Pacifico, Maverick, Stio, Linfield College, Water1st International, TED, Body Glove, Peak Refuel, Andrew Muse Productions, Kai Lenny, Solitude Mountain, Snowbird, Powder Mountain, several wineries in Oregon's Willamette Valley and many others. My work has also appeared in publications including The Oregonian, Overland Journal and the Portland Tribune. I am available for hire both domestically and internationally.
