I try to experience the relationship between light and shadow when watching the world in my daily routine. When I'm behind my camera, I breathe, ground my feet, and put myself into each scene as best I can. I believe photography is more than proper exposure, it really is an art of seeing, experiencing, and making the right choice.   

I have a BA in journalism: news/editorial from Chico State (with a minor in biology) and shot for The Orion student newspaper for several semesters. I then went on to study at Brooks Institute of Photography in Ventura, California with some amazing photographers. I have been shooting weddings, events, sports, kids, and everyday life semi-professionally for about 10-years.
