I am a self-taught landscape and portrait photographer based on Cape Cod. With over 10 years of hands-on experience, I have been pursuing photography for almost half of my life.

At twelve, I counted out money I had earned hawking newspapers to purchase my first Nikon DSLR, literally stacking small bills and towers and towers of change onto the counter of a Ritz Camera store.

At fourteen, I was photographing high school seniors several years older than me, helping build the confidence of young adult women to see their beauty.

At sixteen, I was being driven all over New England by my mother to photograph weddings with my business partner and high school classmate.

At eighteen, I honed my portrait style and began documenting my day-to-day life with more zeal. I created stories that oozed the universal nostalgia of being a teenager, wildness and heartache and invincibility. 

At twenty, I drove 1,750 miles across the country to test the waters of southern living, reconnecting with my Texan roots. I photographed the whole journey and made my inevitable return up north with a portfolio full of landscapes. 

At twenty-three, I have learned how to marry these experiences together to create a photographic style that allows my viewer to dip their toes into my reality. I only show photographs that I have felt with my heart and seen with my eyes. I strive to create pieces that evoke something between excitement and nostalgia. I want my viewer to want to visit the places where I spend my time and to meet the people I've had the pleasure of knowing. I want you to love the beauty of this life as much as I do and that is why I share mine.
