As an adventure-seeking Nature Photographer, the time I spend in the field is invaluable; nature is my classroom. This has been true since I was a child, growing up in Southeast Alaskan Bush. For three years we lived off-grid, deep in the heart of the Tongass National Forest. Life in the Bush revolves around your ability to observe nature: the weather, tides, and seasons.
While learning to read the landscape, I formed a strong bond with Mother Nature. As a child, I was fascinated by the surrounding scenery. From an awe-inspiring sunset to the wonder of rain splattering on calm ocean surface. My childhood admiration for beauty in the Alaskan wild grew into a nature-inspired artistic intuition. Being in nature grounds me in the present. I see beautiful imagery everywhere and my creativity comes alive. Now, as an adult I am inspired to capture and share these moments as photographs.
