I was born and raised in a small rural town in Wisconsin where I grew up with a love for art and exploring the outdoors. I eventually found my way to California where I spent 8 years as a graphic designer, working for agencies and brands on everything from professional sports apparel design to trade show structure creation for fortune 500 companies small startups and everything in between. A call to the wild after years at a desk eventually transitioned my career from design to photography – which had always been a lifelong passion – and I have since shot and traveled all over the world most recently Africa, Turkey, Central America, and Haiti. I am currently living in Colorado with my partner Kellie, who I met while working in Africa. When we are not traveling you can find us outside often camping, hiking, climbing, or working on our vintage van project.
