Photography has become my way to tell the stories I couldn’t tell any other way. I am inspired by the places and cultures that I have been fortunate enough to see and experience. Collaboration with other creatives who tell stories through their art is what feeds my soul.
When I was a kid I wanted to be a fashion designer, but I quickly learned that I couldn’t sew and was quick to pick up a camera after that. I kept dreaming of runway shows and working on photoshoots that were in exotic places. Before I started college I had the opportunity to go to my first fashion show as well as photograph it, and at that moment I knew I needed to enter into this glamorous life.

While attending the Art Institute of Phoenix I worked hard, and became the first fashion photography student to graduate from the school. I was also the first photography student to undertake the challenge of producing an underwater photoshoot. There is a sense of comradery that I love when collaborating with a team of photographers, assistants, models, and stylists. I thrive on the process of an image coming together and appreciate the effort of each member of the team.
After finishing school, the next step on my journey is Los Angeles to search for more opportunities and collaborations. My dream is to become a published photographer with world renowned fashion designers.
