While I enjoyed roaming my backyard with a camera when I was a kid, my interest in photography didn't blossom until a friend convinced me to join the La Porte High School Photography Club in 2009. As a high school senior, I learned darkroom photography. My journey through the landscape architecture program at Purdue over the next five years introduced me to the world of Photoshop, and I traded my fixed lens Sony for a Pentax K-30 DSLR.
I've photographed weddings, senior portrait sessions, and a family portrait session, but my interest has always been natural and wildlife digital photography. My black-and-white photograph "Aftermath" was featured on the cover of Voices Literary Journal in 2018. A year later, "Spiraling" was awarded the Best Still Life blue ribbon in a juried gallery exhibit.
The Photography Gallery is still under construction—thank you for your patience! If you see something you like in the gallery, contact me and I'd be happy to arrange for an official print to be made.
