I'm from a hillside in Ohio, where I grew up catching fireflies and watching purple thunderheads gather on the horizon. I'm a child of nature with a respect for ancestry and the things we carry with us. I believe in cycles, and in detail, and live my life by the details in those cycles. My vision as a photographer is to document the moments that we miss, and to communicate my unique language to the world, exposing life as it has been shown to me. I am a graduate of the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and live in Oregon these days, pursuing my passions for adventure and creativity while providing original, compelling work for a variety of editorial and lifestyle clients.
