About

_MG_9947_adj.jpg

I am a self-taught photographer with a love for telling stories, through both images and written word. My favorite subjects are people. I specialize in event and candid portrait photography.

My photography journey began at five years old, when my mother bought me my first Kodak disposable camera. I continued to pursue that passion all through my childhood, always seeking new ways to improve the skill. Being a very shy, quiet kid, I fell in love with the voice photography gave me, and the power that a single photograph has to tell an entire narrative.

It was that passion for storytelling that led me to pursue a three-year Bachelor's in journalism, with a focus in photojournalism, at Cedarville University.

When I'm not busy at work writing stories or editing a magazine, you can find me experimenting with camera angles and window light... or reading books, or writing short stories, or just listening to music. And sometimes drawing. There's usually a mug of coffee involved, too. 

While candid shots are my preference, I'm currently in search of willing models to help me also build my portrait portfolio.
