YES, IT'S ME, A 22 YEAR OLD PHOTOGRAPHER WHO LOVES NOTHING MORE THAN DOCUMENTING THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE. THE PRECIOUS, IMPERFECT, AND ADVENTUROUS EXPERIENCE THAT WE CALL LIVING. IT DOESN'T TAKE SOMEONE SPECIAL TO SEE ALL OF THAT IN LIFE, BUT IT DOES TAKE THE RIGHT KIND OF PERSON TO TURN YOUR MEMORIES INTO ART. AN ART THAT IS TANGIBLE, SUBTLE, INTIMATE AND ALL YOURS TO CHERISH AND PRESERVE FOR YEARS TO COME. 

I CURRENTLY RESIDE IN KANSAS CITY, A CITY JUST BIG ENOUGH TO FEEL INTIMIDATING AND SMALL ENOUGH TO FEEL LIKE HOME. I LOVE BEING ABLE TO CREATE HERE AMONG PEOPLE WHO SHARE MY SAME LOVE. IN THE PAST WHEN I'VE MOVED AROUND, I FOUND IT INCREDIBLE THAT MOST OF MY CLIENTS BECAME FRIENDS AND EVEN TOUR GUIDES. I CAN'T THANK MY JOB ENOUGH FOR THOSE PEOPLE. TAKING RISKS LIKE THAT ARE SCARY. I'M FROM A SMALL KANSAS TOWN. I MEAN, THERE WAS NEVER MUCH TO DO WHERE I WAS FROM, SO I LEARNED FROM EARLY ON THAT YOUR MOMENTS ARE WHAT YOU MAKE OF THEM. 

It seems almost surreal how much photography has changed my life. 

I MEAN, I DROPPED OUT OF COLLEGE TO PURSUE IT FULL TIME. EXPRESSING MYSELF CREATIVELY AND CREATING A LEGACY I'M PROUD OF HAS LED ME HERE, ENGAGING WITH YOU AND SHARING MY ART FROM MILES AWAY. 

IT'S ALSO ALLOWED ME TO HELP PEOPLE FEEL SEEN- TO SHARE STORIES OF PEOPLE WITH DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS THAN I. BLACK LIVES MATTER, LGBTQIA+ RIGHTS, STOP ASIAN HATE, WOMEN'S EQUALITY, AND MANY MORE ARE ORGANIZATIONS, MOVEMENTS, AND GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT I SUPPORT.


POLITICS AREN'T SOMETHING I LET AFFECT MY BUSINESS, BUT MY I PRIDE MYSELF ON BEING MORE THAN A BUSINESS. I AM AN ARTIST. I BELIEVE THAT MY ART REFLECTS THE PEOPLE I SERVE, AND IN TURN, SHOULD HONOR THE VALUES, PRIORITIES, AND LIVES OF THOSE PEOPLE. 

I SUPPORT YOU, I TELL YOUR STORY, I FIGHT FOR YOU, AND I RESPECT YOU ABOVE ALL ELSE.

 That's exactly what your photographer should be.

And that's who I am.
