A native of the Pacific Northwest in the United States, I’ve always found the world a fascinating place full of wonders, but only since starting photography seriously have I really begun to see. I’m drawn to visual interest as much as subject, resulting in an eclectic portfolio, and I often look for details, close shots, shadows, or unusual angles that I hope will engage the viewer to see a little differently as well. Photography, and improving my skill and vision as a photographer, have become a passion.
I’m also a colored pencil artist (signature member, Colored Pencil Society of America) and digital artist, and I love working with textures and other tools to alter photos for artistic effects. I graduated from the digital design program at Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online in March 2011.
