I grew up in Northern California and moved to the island of O'ahu when I was 15. Both places are deeply rooted within me and created a deep love and respect for the ocean, the mountains, redwood forests, and the unique mixture of communities in both locales. The desire to document these beautiful and inspiring places led me to pick up a camera in middle school, and a passion for photography sparked that continues to this day.
Having studied at the San Francisco Art Institute, as well as the Cabrillo College Film Photography Dept., my love for photography turned into a passion for telling stories. I eventually realized that documenting the love between two people is a special task, as I believe that love is one of the most sacred things we get to experience in this life. Having the opportunity to lend my eye in documenting the story of an incredibly intimate, important day in a couple's life, is something I am beyond grateful for. I am constantly learning and growing in this photography practice, and am humbled by the love and beauty I am able to document. My goal every time is to honestly capture the pure joy, emotion, and moments from that day.
On a personal note, I love the open road, animals, and live music (I share a birthday with Elvis and David Bowie.) I also have a love for baking, especially chocolate chip cookies, and dark cups of coffee. And lastly, I can usually be found playing in the ocean or the mountains in my free time.
