During the summer of 2009 while in the middle of a solo road trip, the most amazing thing happened. My point-and-shoot camera, an old toy that had quickly grown into my new obsession, bit the dust. Inspired by the landscapes around me, I raced to the camera shop for a replacement. Several days later, I ended up with a DSLR. That turned out to be one of the best spontaneous purchases I have ever made. Since then, I have helped document abandoned trails, shoot weddings and portraits for friends, and spread the shutterbug addiction. Photography has opened my eyes to the world, and has given me a reason to get up and get involved. Over time my gear collection has grown, and today I continue to push my skills in the dance of light and shadows.
As for introductions, I was born and raised here in Washington, and continue to call the Pacific Northwest my home. Recently, I obtained a degree in Visual Arts and Communications, and am pursuing a full time career as a photographer, graphic artist, and graphic designer. On top of the arts, I am also passionate about backpacking, psychology, festivals, electronic music, and traveling. I am a bit of an introvert, and a loner, but nothing makes me happier than spending time with a few close friends on a crazy adventure.
