I was born in 1973 to a Homecoming Queen and an Army veteran in a small Mid-Western town along the Mississippi River.

In the past I have lived and traveled all over the United States. Along the way I picked up the camera to somehow help me process everything I saw. In the last decade I graduated from the University of New Mexico in photography, finished a MAE program at Virginia Commonwealth University, co-founded Fraction Magazine, married and had two beautiful children, started a commercial photography business, rebuilt a high school photography program, and somehow found time to make some personal work.

Currently I am living in the Shenandoah Valley in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, working on multiple projects, teaching, and doing commercial work.
