I was born in Seattle Washington in the late 80's and lived there till about five years old. After a job relocation for my dad we landed in Denver, Colorado. I grew up like a normal suburban kid and had a serious passion for Skateboarding. At 19 I moved to Australia with my family which is where I fell in love with Photography. After returning to the states I decided to attend Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs. A passion for solo backpacking grew over my time there , and shortly after graduating a friend introduced me to Ice Climbing. I lost sight of my camera for many years and just climbed. Before I knew it, a desire to document and transcend these adventures became un deniable. In recent years photography has become a full time career, leading to being published in local and national magazines, winning numerous contest, and being featured in the Natural History Museum in Washington DC for 2018.

Artist Statement

There are emotions deep within my soul provoked only through a connection with the natural landscape. These feelings inspire spiritual journeys that have shaped the direction of my life. The search for pastoral bliss where tranquility and chaos collide, creating a sensation of peace in my heart. Blind faith becomes feasible in an age of scientific reason. It is spiritual nourishment the reason why I wander in open spaces, a chance to touch the heart of the land, and discover its sublime character. I wait, and receive weather and light falling as gifts from above.
