I‘m a Chicago native with an insatiable thirst for travel, connections, and gaining new experiences. I work with a curious and creative approach to capture life in all its finest moments.
"A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed."
- Ansel Adams
I’ve been photographing landscapes, my travels & adventures, and lifestyle since early 2017. I established my personal interest by embracing travel photography with a razor sharp focus on shooting beautiful and emotional filled imagery with dramatic colors and layered compositions — all with story telling in mind. To further refine my versatility, I rely heavily on my continuing effort to become a better photographer in other fields outside of travel. I’ve had the opportunity to work with and shoot along side some incredible photographers and continue to hone my craft by continuously studying new techniques.
It all started back when I was in school. I took a photography class as an elective, not knowing that years later I would pursue it full time. Photography was a hobby that quickly became my biggest passion -- taking me on adventures near and far. My goal is to convey how each picture speaks to me. What is important and how is it important, while at the same time training myself to be less reliant on external sources for inspiration. When I'm not taking photographs, I spend time creating experiences in the hospitality industry and running a Chicago photograph community.
