I’ve been a bartender, a derby girl, a typophile, an adventure photojournalist—a lot of modifiers placed before my name that share one common theme—the desire to document adventures and communicate them to others. I love that my work allows me to easily navigate between all walks of life and I believe in acceptance of unions of all types and embracing challenge and diversity.
My interactions are with people and their stories, my experience is unconventional and so is my work. I speak three languages fluently and enjoy traveling worldwide to pursue assignments.
My academic training came from the University of Southern California in photojournalism. From then on, my mentors and colleagues have challenged me to seek my own path as I continue to grow and temper my art. Along the way, I’ve worked for newspapers in Santa Fe, (New Mexican) and Alabama, (Press-Register). I have also specialized in sports, rock-climbing, and expedition photography, as well as photography work for commercial clients such as Heinz, Got Milk?, UFC Mixed Martial Arts, and Patagonia.
I am 27 years old. My camera and I have been to the streets of northern India, the oyster fishing boats of Alabama and Mississippi, the high-altitude mountaineering of Peru, and have international photo competition exposure (2009 Squamish Mountain film festival, 2008 Teva Mountain Games Mountain Click competition).
I love life and look forward to being a part of yours.
