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 rallies for LGBTQ kids to the environment to commercial projects to stories about how the pandemic is affecting Montanans (links to feature stories at bottom).
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.
