Please take look through my work and see if anything interests you. You can also contact me if you have any special requests for anything you would like to see. All photos on this site are available for purchase in a multitude of different forms and products in my shop, along with many more, which are not featured on this site. Hope you enjoy the work!

My Story:

I was born in Chicago and raised in Minnesota. I love to travel and try to go to different places as much as I can, whether it be just a weekend drive to somewhere close to where I live, or a full on trip to somewhere far away. I’ve been to 44 of the 50 states, a handful of countries in Europe, and a couple countries in Asia. I lived in Japan for almost 6 years and while there I did extensive traveling throughout the country. I jumped into the photography world more than 10 years ago with my purchase of my first DSLR, a Nikon D80. A couple years later I moved onto a Nikon D7000, which is the camera I still use today. I’m now based in the San Francisco Bay Area, where I’m looking forward to getting out more in my new home and capture the beauty of Northern California and the surrounding areas.
