I started shooting weddings and portraits in 2005. I bought my first camera simply because I thought taking photos looked fun. I went to a cousin's wedding that year and asked to tag along for the photo shoot. While I'll call the good results luck, it got me hooked! I started learning everything I could about taking beautiful photos. I'm now fortunate to work at something I absolutely love. Traveling to new places, meeting new people, and capturing wonderful moments.
I've spent most of my life here in Bend, Oregon. I'm a graduate of Mountain View High School, and the University of Oregon. I've also been coaching track and cross country coach at Summit High School since it opened. I love working with the kids!
When I'm not working I'm probably outside playing. I love surfing and beach volleyball. I can never get enough hiking and backpacking in our beautiful mountains. I also love a good mountain bike ride. Bend is a wonderful place.
