I was born into a family of adventurers and was raised on the high plains of Wyoming and in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.This environment fueled a lifetime passion about wild spaces and exploring. 

While studying Social Work and Technical Writing at the University of Wyoming, I won a National Geographic Young Explorer Grant to photograph post-tsunami Sumatra, Indonesia.

That trip sparked a leave from school, which led to 32,000 miles of living out of my car, traveling around the West. I've settled in Bozeman, Montana and work as a freelance photographer and writer.

I go on more adventures than planned, I hope to meet you along the way!
