Highly creative and organized visual communicator with 10 years of hands-on experience. Strong background in photography, graphic art, and social media marketing paired with the knowledge of the business and advertising aspects of the communications field. I have been playing with cameras since I was a little girl. I used to steal my mom's camera and use entire rolls of film to photograph my Barbies and stuffed animals. My mom wasn’t thrilled then, but looking back on it now, it explains where my life-long obsession began. I've owned cameras since I was a child, mostly automatic film and instant models, but it wasn't until high school that I really started exploring the endless photographic possibilities. Since then, my camera hasn't left my side. My passion for the field expanded while attending Northern Arizona University, where I studied Commercial Photography and Graphic Design. My favorite thing about photography is that it encourages me to look beyond what others define as "beautiful" and has taught me to see beauty in everything. It's my life that is truly beautiful; my camera simply allows me to share it with the world.
