Q: What is your first memory of creating art or being an artist?

Q: What inspires your works? Are there specific colors, places, experiences, etc. that you draw inspiration
A: Raised in Sun Valley, Idaho, I was constantly surrounded by endless mountain ranges and rivers. I developed a deep connection to nature and an appreciation for natural beauty. This landscape sparked my interest in photography and inspired me to capture its beauty
Q: What type of camera do you shoot with and why?
A: I shoot both digital and film. I use a Canon 5D Mark III as well as a Contax G2. I love being able to create a specific aesthetic using my digital camera through post production, but I also love a point-and-shoot film camera to capture special, authentic moments in time.
Q: How does your photography practice relate to your work in digital marketing and social media?
A: Along with landscape photography, I love shooting fashion. Every single brand needs constant content for their creative marketing.

Ultimately, I aim to collaborate with inspiring creatives, providing visual content that is both high quality and on-brand. My goal is to showcase people and products in an aesthetic and strategic way that will market businesses visually and catapult their social channels to the next level.
