I’ve been a photographer for as long as I can remember. My dad still remembers the day my 12-year old self announced to him, “I know what I want to do for a living—be a photographer.” After attending photo school at Ridgewater College in Minnesota, I ventured out for additional degrees in Theatre and Creative Writing from Florida State University. Each of these studies helped feed my fascination with people—who we all are as characters and how to tell a story about it. I live in beautiful Seattle, WA, but I enthusiastically accept commissions from both the east and west coast, so don't hesitate to drop me a line anytime.
Everyone out there is unique…people in love, people expecting, people while they’re young, silly, and free, people on the biggest day of their lives, or people on days just like any other. Being a photographer is important to me because I get to learn people’s stories and share them through images. The story that I tell is the legacy of the people in it. It’s a story that can be passed down through generations.
That, in a nutshell, is why I do what I do--and love it. I get to give people their stories.
