When I was 16, I packed my bags and went on a wild month-long adventure to Northern India and that’s where I found everything that drives me forward today. I fell in love with the environments beyond my backyard and the people I met along the way; the strangers who would invite me into their homes, make me tea and tell me their stories. I also fell in love with photography and documenting moments as they happened so I could remember them forever and share my own stories.
The world is a really big place with so many wonders and even more fascinating people, and all I want to do in this lifetime is document as many of them as I can. I am a traveler fascinated with the far corners of the world so few people have been to. I’m a camera-wielding storyteller; a road-tripper who lives out of a Subaru Outback. Live music and craft IPAs make me irrationally happy. I’m a tattooed tea addict, a compulsive doodler, a ski bum, an astrology nerd, and a CD collector who occasionally dabbles in rock climbing, graphic design, and cold brew coffee.
A lot of my inspiration comes from both travel and action photography because I'm equally fascinated and frustrated by split-second moments I know I'm only going to get one shot at. I'm attracted to character and passionate people, particularly artists, musicians, and athletes, as well as the people behind the scenes.
