Ever since I received my first camera as a young child, photography has been a big part of my life. At its root it became a way for me to communicate what I saw in the world around me.
While in Architecture school at the University of Minnesota I began thinking of photography as a tool to solving design problems and approached it with the same processes I applied to my design projects. As my interest in photography grew, I took a class with Christian Korab, son of renowned Architectural Photographer Balthazar Korab. I developed a new set of tools, honed my visual sense, and was given a peak into the world of Architectural Photography.
As I grew older and started to apply rigor to my photography it became a way for me to explore the two very different worlds of the built environment and the natural environment. In doing so I began to realize how at odds we are with our planet. It became the problem I needed to solve or rather the problem I needed to show the world.
