For as long as I can remember I have been a visual person. From drawing for my grandmother as a child to watching and helping my Dad build beautiful things with his hands I can’t remember a time where I didn’t enjoy the freedom of being creative. I think every experience has helped me compose the world as I see it through my camera lens. It is an awesome feeling to be able to capture a moment in time that can speak to you on an emotional level. I love that it’s my job to do that every time I pick up my camera!
I have always been interested in the arts but I really started to take up photography in my teenage years. I worked for my high school newspaper and this gave me the opportunity to be creative and explore what I could do with my camera. I then attended the University of Cincinnati where I received a bachelors in Fine Arts. I have been working professionally in the photography field since 2007.
On a more personal note… I love my dog, Shasta and cat, Jake. They keep me grounded and make me laugh. Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons, who doesn’t love sweater weather!? Vacationing almost every summer at the Jersey Shore with my family is something that I will do anything not to miss (and don’t worry my vacations are by no means at all like the MTV show Jersey Shore. Those people are crazy…lol!) but mostly I just enjoy hanging out with family and friends that I love and being able to laugh, cry, smile and cheer with them through life.
