California native, currently living in Truckee. Both of my parents are artists and also growing up in Carmel gave me a great creative environment. Discovering photography very early, around ten, helped me find my unique vision and sense of aesthetics. I was always drawing, figuring it out on my own. In college, Cal Poly SLO, applied art and design with photography were my studies. To give myself time to find my direction and style I landed in the restaurant business, so the nighttime career was supporting my art career. I found opportunities to exhibit my art throughout California and Scottsdale Az through gallery features. Dealing with the demands of life there have been slow times, but currently, I am constantly working and making my most exciting work.
