Born and raised in Seattle, I've been lucky to be surrounded by unique, natural beauty throughout my youth. After 17 years of my life, I decided to leave the Pacific Northwest when I earned the opportunity to attend Santa Clara University. I asked for a D-SLR Camera for my 21st birthday and have been shooting ever since. My senior year of college, I began working as a photographer for five separate organizations on and off campus. I published photos in the Yearbook, The Santa Clara Review, and The Santa Clara which remains one of the oldest university publications west of the Mississippi. In May of my senior year, I won a regional Mark Of Excellence Award in the category of Breaking News Photography. Today, I am a hardworking freelance photographer who is easy to work with and determined to produce quality work.
