Multi-Passionate Creative / Optimist / Outdoor Devotee


I grew up in California and moved to the island of O'ahu when I was 19. Both places are deeply rooted within me and gave me a love for rugged mountains, wild coastlines, and sunshine. The impulse to document the natural world and it's impact on me led me to fill up dozens of journals. The desire 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. I believe that my purpose is to highlight and uplift the gifts and talents of others, and my favorite way to do that is through my creative talents. 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. 

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.

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.
