I began traveling out west when I was 18 years old. At the age of 19 I moved to Oregon where I found my passion for photography and often took trips down the California coast taking many different photos. After taking a few photography courses both digital, and film in Oregon, I moved back to Nebraska to attend the photography program at Metropolitan Community College. I continue to travel to take many of my photographs, while pursuing both a photography and arts associates degree. I have presented work in many different exhibitions, and have received multiple awards.
