Art is an expression of the creative eye. The one thing that is unique to each artist as we take the world in our eyes and translate it through our work. Photography is my platform and my expression of what is at my very core.
Since I was crawling, my parents had taken me camping, bringing me back home blackened with dirt. Once I began walking and still a kid, I would wake up before sunrise with my mother as she would photograph wildlife in Rocky Mountain National Park. Along the way I would try to steal her camera to sneak in a couple of shots but I was still too young to be trusted to handle expensive equipment. These trips built up the love and personal connection that I have with nature and a passion to capture nature.
Despite being around a camera at a young age it wasn't until I was 17 that I received a pocket camera just to capture my experiences in high school. But it was during a trip to Rhode Island my Junior to Senior summer that I began to take pictures for myself again. My first picture that started it all: a picture on the beach of a piece of driftwood. With the results, I was encouraged to pursue it. I have been documenting my love for travel, nature, and the beauty of life around me ever since. I have spent time exploring many states including Colorado, New Mexico, California, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania. But my travels have also expanded outside the US and into the Caribbean, New Zealand, Iceland, and Indonesia.
There's something about the connection between the camera, the world, and I that is unrivaled to anything else. It's something that vibrates in my soul. I hope that my viewers can get a sense of the emotion and story within each picture I take.
