I am a Seattle-based photographer, writer, and filmmaker.  I create personal projects and am also available for commissions throughout the Pacific Northwest.

After graduating with a B.A. in journalism and minor in geography from the University of Cincinnati in 2009, I worked for four years as a freelance editorial researcher, helping to ensure the accuracy, fairness, and clarity of information in manuscripts for National Geographic digital media, Smithsonian Magazine, and others. In 2014, I enrolled in Ohio University's School of Visual Communication (VisCom) M.A. photography program in order to study another means of reflecting and interpreting pieces of the human condition.   

My work often explores history, memory, and the ways in which American cultures and traditions are maintained, evolve, or are abandoned. I am drawn to connections between people, place, and the concept of home.

I enjoy collaborating on creative projects, so please feel free to contact me if you're interested in working together.
