I also work on film and timelapse projects, and I have completed projects in graphic design and fine art as well.
I grew up in Oregon, which gave me a love of the outdoors, and I was born in Germany, which instilled a love of travel in me at an early age. I took up photography to document my experiences outdoors and abroad, and it is my biggest passion in life. I first taught myself photography basics in high school as part of a way to document my family travels, but it wasn’t until the past few years that I began to seriously pursue it and teach myself as much as I could about shooting and editing.
In 2013 I made photography my main focus; I moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a Master’s in Biological Photography & Imaging from the University of Nottingham. I graduated in 2014 with distinction and was awarded the Brian Case Memorial Award for the highest overall performance. I loved experiencing life in England, and I traveled around the country as much as I could, as well as visiting other European countries, further fueling my love of travel.
