I was born and raised in Park City, Utah. Growing up in this sort of landscape shaped my love for all things outdoors. Skis replaced shoes for many of my younger years, leading to dedicated ski racing and schooling in New England. As my interests continued to evolve into adulthood, Utah powder replaced my need for hard packed speed sessions through gates. Returning back to my hometown allowed me the freedom to travel, explore and form new friendships along the way. These wanderings eventually opened the door to photography as a viable career option. I centered my professional self at the Rocky Mountain School of Photography in Montana and never looked back. Today I work with top outdoor and apparel brands and push myself to expand my horizons through new working relationships and personal projects that help sharpen my vision. Collaboration, the shared experience in creating something special, is at the top of my priority list.
