I was born and raised in Maui, Hawaii, with a photographer as my father, and found myself on both sides of the lens growing up. Being my dad’s model and the occasional photographer assistant, I learned photography at an early age. At age 20, I landed my first photography job with the World Wildlife Foundation in Bhutan, shooting nomadic tribes, endangered animals, and their sustainability projects. My evolution in photography began when I combined my passion with highlining and climbing through photography. It started with establishing highlines in Yosemite that led to yearly trips to Tasmania in search of new climbs and highlines.
Taking photos of my adventures has opened up amazing opportunities to work with other photographers and production companies over the years. I still find myself on both sides of the lens these days, working with companies ranging from Samsung to Red Bull. Lately, my photography has become a by-product of my adventures. I’m grateful to have worked with different companies on a commercial level, as well as the ones that have sponsored my highlining and climbing endeavors.
