Brief Summary
I am a conceptual photographer. I am a writer. I am a designer. I trust my intuition and vision. I am inspired by the work of others. I snowboard (in the back country). I love yoga. Music influences my life every day. I crave sunshine. The ocean makes me smile. I enjoy a challenge.

My work reflect my honest interpretation of a moment. I have a passion called “creating” and it drives my life.

I was born in Pittsburgh, PA. I received my BS in journalism from the University of Colorado in Boulder, CO, and my MFA in photography from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, CA. I guess you can call me educated – but I believe strongly in the education called life.
