About the Photographer

I was raised in eastern Washington state and attended the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho, where I earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry with a minor in philosophy.

In 2011 I started working as a photojournalist and developed a passion for editorial photography creating images for my college magazine. I fell in love with capturing portraits of interesting and unique people, learning about their stories in the process.

I used photography to financially support myself through college, and after graduating I decided to forgo a graduate degree in chemistry in favor of moving to NYC to pursue a career in photography.

I am a skier, swing dancer, and philosophy enthusiast living in Brooklyn.
