I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. At the age of 16 I picked up my first film camera and fell absolutely in love with it. Apart from one dark room class in high school I am self taught. I started on 35 mm film. I shot exclusively on film for 13 years, until I made the transition to digital in 2013.
My heart and desire to explore the intricate beauty of the human existence on this earth has pulled me all over the globe. I have travelled to over 20 countries, many of them multiple times. I am also an herbalist and homestead a piece of land in the beautiful valleys of Southern Oregon. I am drawn towards things that are close to the earth and revel in documenting indigenous cultures, farm scapes and plants.
