Born on June 16, 1985 on Clark Air Force Base in the Philippines, I lived in Germany and England before moving to the United States. I have lived in Georgia, Illinois, both the Lower and Upper Peninsulas of Michigan and Bush Alaska.
In the fall of 2003, I moved to Houghton in the Keweenaw Peninsula while attending Michigan Technological University. Surrounded by the natural beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, I developed a fascination for photography and began photographing nature and landscape. Eventually, I took a job as a student photographer for Michigan Tech and began doing sports photography and special events.
Upon my graduation from Michigan Tech in the Spring of 2008, I moved to Alaska to begin work as an educator. I have lived and worked in three different Bush Alaska villages. I taught in both Shaktoolik, AK and Koyuk, AK; I continue to work in the education field in Dillingham, AK.
I believe that one of the great perks of working as an educator is that I get to split my summers between taking classes and traveling. Since graduating college, I've started working on my goal of visiting every state in the country and I often bring my camera along.
