I first became enamored with photography in early elementary school, when I became fascinated with capturing sunsets. This discovery begat boxes of photographs of the view of the sunset from my back yard in North Texas.
Many years later, and hundreds of miles away from that backyard, my photography focuses mostly on people. Through training in the art program at Yale University (where I studied with Tim Davis, Tod Papageorge and Greg Crewdson), dedicated mentors, and some fairly good luck, I am now doing what I love. I currently live in Vancouver, BC.
I find inspiration all around me. As a favorite teacher once told me, "I think the greatest invention of the twentieth century is the notion that anything can be beautiful." I admire, and am endlessly grateful for, all the people who helped me be who I am today.
I have photographed for recording artists Michal Towber and Kelsey Toney, and has been published in Newsweek's Current magazine. My photography has been featured in gallery shows at Yale, both in solo shows, and larger collections.
