Looking back, as to how I became a photographer is somewhat of a blur to me. As you can see, my skills needed to be developed (no puns intended).

As a child I remember being in my father’s advertising studio, watching photo shoots and even being a test model at times. I wish I could say this experience is what moved me to become a photographer, but, honestly it didn’t truly cross my mind until years later, in college. Where I decided to take a photography course and purchased my first camera, a Pentax K1000.

However, after college, I went straight into the corporate world, while just playing with photography on the side. It wasn’t until after seven years of being in the corporate world, I finally decided to pursue photography.


Finally, seven years later, I decided to pursue photography full-time and enrolled at the Art Institute of Colorado. After having the opportunity to work in Georgia (internships with various commercial photographers), Indiana (as a freelance photographer with studio space at the Stutz Building) and Maine (the Maine Photographic Workshops), I ended up back in Denver, back to the beautiful light and landscape Colorado has to offer.

My passion is food and still life photography. I enjoy capturing priceless moments from portraits to weddings. Lastly, because photography is my life, and my life is photography; I enjoy working on personal projects of my own! Currently, one that involves having fish as my housemates!
