As an aesthete and expressive writer at heart, visual storytelling is my passion. I create art and share stories that explore the human condition, investigate the realm of mental health, advocate for environmental conversation and sustainability, and express my personal connection to the natural world and humanity alike.
From mountains to meadows, nature and landscape photography holds a dear place in my heart. I love spending a day outside wandering around, curiously examining and shooting my surroundings. When I'm out in nature I don't always find what I'm looking for, but I always come out with what I need.
With portrait photography I aim to capture life as it happens - lifestyle photography. One of my favorite things about this shooting style is that it's aimed at capturing photos of people and situations as they happen. It's one thing to pick up a camera and direct someone to strike a pose and smile, it's entirely different to pick up a camera and create a memorable experience.
I use creative writing as a means of deep, personal expression. Whether it be a short about my appreciation of nature or a piece that describes my struggle with elements of my character or my relationship to others, I am open - raw - when I write.
