I am a native Oregonian who was kidnapped to the Sonoran Desert outside of Phoenix, Arizona, for two years. Happily, I am now back among the big trees, deep rivers, and snowy mountains that I so adore.
I started my photography career at the age of six, tormenting family and friends with an antique Brownie. A couple of years later I moved on to an Agfa Optima 35mm point-and-shoot as a grade schooler. I entered into the SLR world at 15 years old when I bought the brand-new, state-of-the-art, top-of-the-line Canon AE-1 with my paper route earnings. I learned to drive as I learned to shoot...long weekend drives in the Southern Oregon and Northern Californian countryside with my father.
I was a featured photographer in Portland's RAW: natural born artists "Ensemble" showcase and nominated as a Finalist for Portland RAW's 2012 Photographer of the Year award. My profile can be viewed at:
In addition to private collections, my work has been used on educational websites and shown in galleries in Portland and Newport, Oregon. My nature, street art and food photography can be viewed at my website:
