Born from the coast and mountains of the Southeast United States and currently based in Bozeman, Montana, I draw on a strong passion for the natural world to produce creative and inspiring imagery that captivates audiences all over the globe. Ranging from documenting the 2015 earthquake relief in Nepal to following the experience of students learning about Alaska, my work tells an important story of meaningful experiences and a connection with both humanity and the environment.
Proficient in photography, filmmaking and writing, I combine my expertise as a media professional with a keen understanding of marketing and brand strategy. With this unique combination of skills I am able to work with a wide array of clients, both under an editorial guise as well as commercial.
Supporting my media and marketing expertise is a strong drive to travel and explore the outdoors. My extensive background in outdoor education and leadership gives me a unique advantage to go further, stay longer, and capture the imagery that truly tells the full story.
