I received my first camera at age 12, a Polaroid 600, and that was it for me.  I haven’t stopped photographing since.

Photography is not only my passion and my art, it is my release.  It is the way I process the world around me, the way I express myself best.   I love to create photos that capture emotion, and I understand the power that a good photograph holds.

I became a professional photographer in 2001, photographing weddings, portraits, and musicians. In 2011, I became the director of the photography department at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art, teaching and designing photography classes. I left that position in 2016, but continue to coordinate the Sawtooth Photo League, which I founded in 2012.

Today I photograph portraits by appointment only and continue to create photographic art, appearing in Shots magazine and recently winning one of ten prizes among photographers around the globe in the Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk 2020.
