Born and raised in the small town of Ripon Wisconsin, I simply had to be creative to keep myself entertained. After dedicating my childhood to mainstream sports and cultivating a good work ethic, I found skiing throughout my high school years. Acquiring my first camera when I was 12, I began to shape my eye for composing an image, first utilizing these skills while documenting the skiing adventures of my close friends.
It was my love for skiing that motivated me to move west in the fall of 2005, and since then the special communities of Steamboat Springs Colorado and Alta Utah have welcomed me home. Over the years my hobby has evolved into a career, serving as an amazing platform to explore new landscapes, meet inspired individuals, and discover new interests.
My work has been published around the world within the adventure, action, and active lifestyle fields, and you will often find me skiing, mountain biking, hiking and backpacking. Inspired by peace and clarity found within nature, I’m excited to grow as a photographer and storyteller, finding purpose within my passion, and sharing my stories with others to make a difference in this world where I can.
