I grew up in California, moved to the island of O'ahu when I was 19, and currently reside in Seattle, WA. All three places are deeply rooted within me and gave me a love for rugged mountains, wild coastlines, and sunshine. My desire to document the natural world and the way it made me feel led me to writing. My drive to share the experience and inspire others is what led me to pick up a camera.

My photography style is influenced by a love of natural light and landscapes, adventure, and candid moments. Whether I'm working for an environmentally conscious brand or a small business owner, I feel immense gratification in supporting other's aspirations and promoting their good work through creativity. 

On a personal note, I'm a lifetime student of yoga and meditation, an advocate for simplicity, and a follower of curiosities. Snail mail, coffee, and road trips in my VW bus Buttercup all rank high on my love list.

My guiding values are authenticity, integrity, fun and gratitude
I lose track of time when I'm behind the camera or reading a great book
Lake Tahoe holds a special place in my heart because it's the gathering spot for my family in the summer. 
I can read When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron over and over again. 
I can't go a day without coffee

Everyday I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.
