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 took up photography independently in high school as part of a way to document my family travels.
After high school, I moved to Los Angeles and received my Bachelor of Arts from Occidental College with a major in Biology and a minor in studio art. I pursued independent photography projects, worked for my university’s newspaper, and did an external internship with Tomas Skaringa, owner of the Big Affair Photography.
