Natural light photographer based out of Los Angeles, California.

My interest in photography grew from the desire to document the beauty of the natural world. With a passion for vast landscapes, big mountains, old-growth forests, and isolated coastlines, photography became my preferred tool-of-choice in an attempt to convey the richness these experiences bring.

My passion for the environment temporarily led me to the Pacific Northwest, where I worked in the environmental field doing conservation work in Olympic National Park. The overarching goal, driving my imagery, is to compel others to step out of their comfort zone and experience these wild places firsthand.

I earned my B.A. in Political Science in the Spring of 2017 from UCLA with an emphasis in International Relations. Among other things, I spend the majority of my free-time backpacking, camping, and reading.
