I am a travel and nature photographer based in Lacey, Washington. Like many, my relationship with photography began with a simple point-and-shoot digital camera that I received as a gift from my parents when I was a student in Ann Arbor, Michigan. With the freedom to take as many photos as I liked, I quickly became fascinated with creating images. I initially started in macro and street photography around campus because it did not require much traveling and money was tight.
After college and moving back to the Pacific Northwest, I feel fortunate to have so many beautiful locations to see and enjoy within close proximity to my home. Additionally, I have found photography to be a great motivator to travel and experience new places. I draw inspiration from images that make me want to visit locations nearby or faraway, and hope my images can do the same for others.
Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of my work.
