I am a Pacific Northwest native, born & raised in Issaquah, WA, but have been living on the East Coast for the last several years. I am currently in New York City!


I have always enjoyed taking photos for both their visual content and the stories they tell. I also like to paint, and have been exploring different techniques and subjects to find a style that best expresses my creative ideas.

I love traveling, and I've been lucky enough to see some beautiful sights around the U.S. In 2015, I went on a cross-country road trip from Seattle to DC. Glaciers, geysers, goats, and beyond afforded a wonderful opportunity for photography, and it was an experience I'll never forget. 

While I consider taking photos just a hobby, it's been a useful ability to have for work. As the Marketing Coordinator for a hospitality group in DC, I took photos of food, drinks, and events that have been featured on popular websites such as Washingtonian, OpenTable, and Eater.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you may find something on this site that you can relate to in some way!
