My deep passion for the outdoors and subsequent love for photography can be traced back to my roots.

I am so incredibly lucky to be born and raised at the foot of the Tetons. Early life was filled with skiing, climbing, camping, hiking, backpacking, and enjoying my “backyard” with family and friends. Growing up in Jackson, Wyoming exposed me to unique experiences that I began to document with my flip phone and later with modern camera equipment. I have begun to specialize in capturing imagery in beautiful and sometimes unforgiving environments.

But it is my appreciation for my home that forged a drive to create meaningful stories about and in the mountains where I was raised. I strive to produce imagery for both commercial and editorial applications to inspire others to revere and protect our sacred lands and planet.
