I was born and raised in the wine country of Northern California, in the small town of Healdsburg. Always interested in the arts as a young child, I seriously took up photography in high school when I fell in love with the medium. From then on I pursued photography by taking advanced photography courses throughout High School and eventually receiving a Bachelors of Fine Arts in photography from Seattle University. As a dual citizen of both the U.S. and Switzerland, I have spent many summers traveling throughout Europe, learning French and Spanish and expanding my photography portfolio. My goal with each photo is to achieve a balance between serenity and wanderlust, to transport the viewer to the location by capturing the essence and energy of the way I felt in the moment of capturing the photo.
