I have been fascinated with photography since I was a child, watching my father, a photojournalist, and his cousin, a photographer work on projects late into the night in his workshop. It was in 2008 that I decided to pick up a camera and make art and document events myself. I grew up on the Monterey Peninsula, which has a rich photographic history itself. I Completed the Photography program at Monterey Peninsula College in 2013. I am currently based out of Cottage Grove, Oregon, about 20 minutes outside of Eugene.
