Not long after graduating from the University of Virginia, I discovered Montana on a spontaneous cross-country road trip.
Over twenty years later, I am based in Bozeman with my family, covering everything from the population growth in Montana and the West to rallies for LGBTQ kids to the environment
To every project, I bring my love for the people, land and politics of the West. I am moved by the challenge of crafting both readable and complex images. I think about every artistic decision - from color palette to emotional tenor to quality of light - to create photographs that communicate the story at hand.
Through experience, I have learned the difference between chasing a moment and waiting for it to unfold; I have learned when to follow photographic rules and when to break them. I remain awed by all the variables that play into the creation of beautiful images.
