Born in Santa Cruz, California where the redwoods meet the ocean, I have a love for all things outdoors.  From there my parents moved us completely off grid.  My first ten years were spent walking the beach watching my parents surf, riding horses, fishing, gardening, hiking, building rope swings, or chopping wood. I think this explains why I'm drawn to shooting off the beaten path adventures and hike stories.  But with that I also love beautiful minimal studio portraits.  Given the chance my favorite is to combine the two for for some adjacency.

Currently living in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles, with my pup where I no longer have to chop my own wood, and more of my dinners are delivered from Postmate's than my garden but I'm enjoying the balance ;)
