After graduating from the University of Utah in 2009 with degrees in Sociology and International Studies, and with no job prospects, I traveled to Vietnam with a point and shoot camera and a desire to create unforgettable travel imagery. I thought I would come back, find a "real job" and get the idea of traveling for a living out of my system. I was wrong. Photography had become my life and the world was my classroom. After several years of honing my skills and working odd jobs to pay the bills, I finally felt confident enough to go full-time as a freelance photographer in 2013. It has been a rough road full of ups and downs, but every experience has been a learning opportunity. I have been able to work with some extraordinary people on unforgettable projects and I couldn't be more grateful to do what I love.
